Much like the Spellbook of the Lost and Found shows up for the characters in the novel, it also somehow ended up in my hands. This eerie, supernatural journey pushes the bounds of loyalty, reality and time for a group of Irish teens. This book does not shy away from tough subjects. It largely handles these things without judgment from parents or friends, giving its characters the time and space they need to really discover the power of choice. This was a different journey than I’m used to and I enjoyed the ride! If you’ve read it, or think you’d like to, let me know what you think!

NOTE: I would not recommend this for younger teens, and 17-18+ would likely be most appropriate if we were thinking in terms of movie ratings. As a parent, even if I had been warned with a “pay attention to what your child reads” letter like I send home, I would be upset if this was an available choice for grades 6-10. That said, I had a 9th grader last year with an old soul and some pretty tough adultish experiences under her belt...I would have maybe given it to her!

This morning our 9th graders were learning about the significance of newspapers in history while our BYP students were practicing reading using the same. #iteachschools #choicereading

I spent 1 year without a classroom & one thing I missed the most was my library. The first thing I did in my new room was start to get that organized! It needs a lil revamping & organized into a few more specific genres, but overall I’m happy to see it! 😍

When every student is reading a different book, it can be challenging to keep a pulse on reading pace, genre diet, and overall class needs. That’s why I use a simple book spine accountability approach to stay organized with independent reading. It’s fun to see students read books every month as part of the full choice book clubs I’ve run. Plus, the spines look so cute displayed on the walls and contribute to our community of readers! Find more details about this resource I just uploaded through the link in my profile. 😊👆🏼

I’m sorry I’ve been so awful about posting!⁣
⁣
My kids are out for the summer + I’m taking summer courses for grad school + I’m always running my R+F business + I accepted a teaching position for the fall, so I’m planning and prepping! ⁣
⁣
There are lessons and my classroom to get ready,  and reading or re-reading PD books to do the best that I can. ⁣
⁣
If I could only read one PD book for the rest of my life, I would choose 𝘉𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘓𝘰𝘷𝘦 by Penny Kittle, no question. If you teach ELA, you need to read it. ⁣

One of the best things that I did this school year was conference with my students during their choice reading unit. It was a very pleasant experience talking to all my students about their books. My students used Seesaw because I found that to be the easiest way for them to store their artifacts in one place. For Choice Activity B, some of my students posted pictures of themselves reading to their dogs! 😂Too cute! I loved hearing what my students had to say about their reading lives. We need to create more positive experiences with reading! 📖 
The "Choice Board for Choice Reading" is in my TpT store. 🤗The link is in my bio! .

Our latest Summer School read - a book that rocked me and wrecked me the first time I read it, for many reasons. My group of all boys unanimously voted for this one.

Another year almost in the bag. Circulation continues to climb, thanks to #genrefiction and English teachers’ continued support of #choicereading. What will happen next year with two sections of #independentreading being offered Tri1? Looking forward to finding out!

Our district has been talking a lot about readers’ workshop this year. One of the conversations we’ve been having is about reading notebooks. I love how Christina @hansonhallway incorporates language, reading, and writing into her secondary notebooks with tabs and then organizes each class’s notebooks in separate baskets. .
.
ALSO - 😍 this anchor chart (swipe 👉🏼) Christina created during a mini lesson when her school began workshop a couple years ago is so perfect! Implementing explicit lessons like this one, reading stamina, book fit, etc. is so important. .
.
Tell us: Do you use reading workshop in the classroom, and, if so, what is your favorite lesson to get it up and running? .

If you are a MS or HS teacher looking for classroom library tips and book recommendations, check out Christina @hansonhallway - she has you covered with inspiration!💕

Teachers, put this on your summer reading list! This book is unbelievably cute; it's like Where'd You Go, Bernadette, but with normal people, meets What Not To Wear. Amy is a librarian and single mom who doesn't realize she needs a break until her husband (who ran away for 3 years) makes his reappearance. He wants time with his kids, and she forces herself to take a vacation. ~She travels to New York to attend a librarian conference where she gives a talk on #choicereading and allowing students to flourish without worrying about reading levels.~ What she ends up with, though, is so much more. She realizes that sometimes it's ok to think about what's best for you and not worry about other people. Her stream of consciousness is charming and her banter with everyone she talks to is hilarious! If you like stories about love and family and loving books, then this is for you!

Loved it! Finished this one in just three days and my fellow moms of young children out there know that means it was really good. This mysterious story begins at the end, and trying to figure out what happened to the narrator kept me turning pages as I discovered the story of her loss, love and life in California. The final resolution in the present at her college in the northeast is lovely and hopeful. ❤️ Have you read this one? What did you think?

Summer curriculum writing has begun, and I could not stop thinking of this today! We were really digging into some English teacher *controversies* about whether or not we should all teach the same novel, if we should do whole group novels, or if we should do lit circles. We don't have a consensus yet, but I tend to the side of one whole group novel, one lit circle, and one choice book. How about you? Where do you stand on these kinds of English teacher controversies? I also wrote a post about this: http://moore-english.com/english-classroom-controversies/

Yes! I always used to argue with my 10th grade math teacher about why I needed to know imaginary numbers, and she would always say I needed to know them for my next math class. Today, as an educator myself, I never want to use this argument. I want to show students why they need to learn what they’re learning by having them use the skills to create something real- whether it’s a poem for a poetry slam, a children’s book they’re actually going to be reading to kids, or a blog that is going to have the entire world as its audience. How do you keep kids engaged in real work in the classroom? Let’s share our best ideas! I’ll be drawing one of the commenters tomorrow to win my full independent reading program. #2ndaryela #choicereading #iteachela

180 Days: Two Teachers and the Quest to Engage and Empower Adolescents, has given me a lot to consider as I prepare to map next year’s 6th grade curriculum scope and sequence. Trying to answer the common teaching question, “How do you fit everything into a single school year,” Kelly and Penny document a year’s worth of teaching their freshman English classes. In this standardized testing day in age, I loved that these two chose quality over quantity while still keeping rigor, choice, engagement, and differentiation at the forefront of their teaching. .

The last week of school has completely snuck up on me! It is time to reflect on the year, celebrate the successes and leave any failures behind. I am so incredibly proud of my students and loved seeing their accomplishments this year. The number on the paper represents the number of books they each read this year. It is amazing to see what our students can do when we just.let.them!!! Going to miss these people so much next year! 😭 #choicereading #wildreaders

#weneeddiversebooks Do you want to participate in a project to connect student readers around the world? 
I'm launching an idea called The Modern Voices Project. 
Here's how it works:
1. Students design and submit book posters about books they love that they feel represent some part of their own story. 2. I publish them online for teachers around the world to print and share with their students. 
Students get a real audience for their work and the chance to make a difference to other students. Teachers get a new resource for book ideas and an array of wonderful reading posters to print for their walls.
Check out the show notes for this week’s episode of The Spark Creativity Teacher Podcast to learn more! 
P.S. please share this project with others who might like to participate by tagging teacher friends or adding it to your stories. .

This kid made my year last week. A reluctant reader all year, he came to class not only having read his assigned chapters, but excited to get the next book in the series! #choicereading #literaturecircles #spectrumsting

Me in a nutshell. Over the last month I've read/listened to 12 books. Since my kids were reading, I read too! You have to model what good reading looks like, right? 😉 I also decided that I want to collect enamel pins. I have one for my favorite podcast, and my mother in law gave me a pin of RBG's dissent collar; both of which are on my school lanyard! This is the newest addition; it felt right after all the reading I've been doing! I'm so happy to have found my love of reading and that I've been able to push that off on my kids! For the most part, they have enjoyed this unit, and that makes me very happy!

For our independent reading unit, I created this "Choice Board for Choice Reading" document. My goal was to make these activities enjoyable and practical in order to reflect a "real" reading life. I had fun drawing my own clipart for this resource! ☺️ Just uploaded this product to TpT! The link to my store is in my bio. 📖💕

Do you guys know my friend @amandawritenow ? She’s a fellow podcaster (check out The Workshop Teacher Podcast!), a blogger extraordinaire, and an inspiring teacher. I love the tips, tricks and charts she shares on her feed. And isn’t her classroom inviting? I love that library, the writer’s spotlight bulletin board, and the flexible seating and workshop meeting space. Go check out her feed! 😀

Just started. Almost done. Really wanted to include this in an article I’m writing for @follettlearning about powerful YA, based on the recommendations you guys gave me. And you were right. 📕 Gratz weaves together three stories of young people fleeing, one from Aleppo, one from Cuba, and one from Nazi Germany. 📗 I sometimes dislike rapid narrative shifts, but in this case it has really kept me glued to the book (a quality I love in books for student readers). 📓 This book raises vital issues, pressing for action, compassion, and empathy by sharing stories. Never underestimate the power of #yalit to change the world in the hands of our brave and intelligent young people. .

Within twenty-four hours of hosting the book tasting, I've heard amazing feedback! Between having a student already finish her book to having a parent tell me that his child was reading at night instead of playing video games, my teacher heart is so happy! .
.
.
Today, we went over expectations in order to foster a culture of reading on our team. I highlighted how I want my students to read anywhere and everywhere: the waiting room of a dentist's office, a sibling's soccer game, the bus stop, etc. Then, I talked to my students about how the main objective is to read for pleasure and how we will only have four required activities, all of which are choice-based and real-world activities. .
.
.
I did a brief overview of how students can "chunk" their own readings. Lastly, we wrapped up today's shortened lesson by completing this "All About My Book" document. I plan on photocopying my students' pages and putting them in a binder, so I can keep track of everyone's reading! .

Alex recommends New Kid by Jerry Craft! It's an amazing graphic novel with relatable characters, important themes, and perfect amounts of humor.  Here's to hoping there will be more to make this into a series! 📖♥️

Have you tried a book tasting in your classroom? It’s such a fun, easy way to introduce kids to lots of new books. Pull your seating together into tables, add some cafe-style elements like tablecloths, flowers, drinks, or snacks, spread the books across the tables, and give kids a menu of the books to take notes on. Then let them rotate through the books, “tasting” each one to find out which ones are a good fit! The resource here is available free on my site in my “How to Host a Book Tasting” post (link in profile). #booktasting #freeresources #literaturecircles #litcirclesarelit #choicereading #iteachela

Hooray for Amazon day! 3 new books that I’m excited to add to my classroom library! I’m working to include fewer whole class novels, and more choice reading units for my 10th graders. It’s definitely more work for me, but I truly believe that choice reading units are what creates adult readers in the future. 📚❤️ #bookstagram #choicereading #YAlit #secondary #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teacherlife🍎

Realized today that I have not posted for awhile! End of the year craziness is definitely upon us. Wanted to share a few of the books that have been making rounds in my classroom the past couple weeks. Make sure you are getting books into the hands of your students everyday! #choicereading

We are finishing up Lord of the Flies and heading into our final book choices of the year: books that deal with personal mental and physical journeys! Although I'd like to eventually be able to include more recently published YA books, I'm still pretty happy with these choices. The two most popular titles chosen were The Alchemist and Speak. I'm excited to get my students into book clubs and talking about their books. Their culminating project will be either a character autopsy or a literary food truck (thanks @nowsparkcreativity 😘)! #yalit #yafiction #elateachers #iteachela #iteachhighschoolenglish #iteachhighschool #iteachtenth #booklover #bookshelf #book #bookstagram #bookclubs #litcircles #bookhoarder #teenfiction #studentreaders #choicereading

Need a great book this long weekend? @angiethomas has nailed it again. Powerful, relatable, honest protagonist? Check. Strong, unique, caring supporting characters portrayed with depth? Check. Building tension and drama leading to an ending that surprises and delights? Check. ❤️📕 I loved this book! I hope you add it to your TBR list if you haven’t read it yet, or tell me what you thought if you have! #ya #yanovels #bookstagram #readinglibrary #choicereading #englishteacher #teachingwriting #iteachela

A common thread between the work of Kylene Beers, Stephen Krashen, Kelly Gallagher, and so many others is the fact that choice reading is essential to building students’ reading abilities and their love of reading. After reading so much about this topic and seeing positive benefits in my intervention groups throughout the years, I’ve decided that I cannot go another year without attempting to integrate choice reading into the fourth unit! Luckily, the way things worked out this year pacing wise, it will be possible! I’m excited!
.
.

What recommendations do you have as I embark on this journey? I like the idea of a book tasting, but I also feel that my whole classroom library should be “up for grabs." I have one hundred students, and I would love for them to utilize my classroom library. We also have a great school library. I’d love suggestions for this initial step, specifically how to manage it when they are selecting the books on day one. What should I do in preparation for this?
.
.
.
Do you have students store their books in the classroom in a separate area, or do students take their books home? I’m thinking it will be dependent on the student! .
.
.
Do students have to split up their books into pre-determined sections, or can it happen organically?
.
.
.
What are some must-do activities? I’m most excited to have fun with these and to see an array of student work! I already have a few ideas lined up!
.
.
.
Do you ever have students respond to questions, or take notes for choice reading? .
.
.
I can’t wait to see if students are going to gravitate towards solo sessions or “book club” choices as I have a few class sets. I allow a mix of independent and collaborative reading, so it shall be interesting to see how this unfolds! What is your experience with this?
.
.
.
What is a must-read professional development book on this topic? Any helpful blog posts? I’m looking for more *concrete* ways of building a choice reading unit. .
.
.
Any and all suggestions are welcome!

Right? I love it when we let kids read what they love! How much would we really read at the end of a busy day if we didn’t get to choose books we connect with.

Book covers can lead to some really engaging and meaningful analytical discussions in the ELA classroom. This new resource I just uploaded to my store has three parts:  1) Students make observations about books in groups and then analyze and evaluate covers of books they have and have not read. 2) Then, they redesign a book cover for a different audience or purpose or to make it more effective. 3) Finally, they write an informative response about effective book cover elements, synthesizing what they learned during the activity. This is also a great way to get new books on their “to read” lists! Find more details through the link in my profile. 👆🏼😊

Every day my students come in and we read for 10 minutes. They know our IR time (independent reading) is “sacred” and they don’t use it for bathroom breaks, studying, or chatting. They truly look forward to this time. This has been by far the best thing I’ve done in my class this year. #choicereading #independentreading #teachingela #teacher #engagedstudents #iteach #secondaryela #secondaryteacher

We have books everywhere right now to get ready for our choice reading unit and creative thinking project + some of my students took it upon themselves to make the books pretty. 😂

P.s. I realize James Patterson is not YAL; it got moved there for aesthetic reasons apparently. 😂

Raise your hand if this makes you really happy. 🌈 . . We have books everywhere right now to get ready for our choice reading unit and creative thinking project + some of my students took it upon themselves to make the books pretty. 😂 . . . P.s. I realize James Patterson is not YAL; it got moved there for aesthetic reasons apparently. 😂 . . . . . . #bookstagram #elateacher #secondaryela #teacherlife #teachersoftpt #reading #readmorebooks #choicereading #iteachtoo #tftpickme #teachersofig #teachersfollowteachers

I just devoured this beautifully written book through letters! All about India breaking apart into Pakistan - a time period I knew little about! This book would be amazing for my fifth graders!! #gottaread #windowbook #choicereading  #bookrecommendations

When your co teacher leaves happy notes worth celebrating: one week, 22 kids, 10 minutes a day, 732 pages. This is a co taught class of 10th grade students for most of whom reading has been painful. @mcfaddenreads

I've started promoting one book per week with my seventh grade lit class. I'm focusing on books that they wouldn't normally pick up on their own and books that would challenge them! (Especially on the ones that they wouldn't normally pick up 😉) I'd welcome any suggestions!

Seventh grade literature is working on the free reading project! The class has the goal for each student to read 1,000 pages of independent reading per quarter for the year. When they finish reading their free choice reading book, they submit a 25 word review (positive or negative), and we post the recommendations for our other classmates to read!
