#100ReasonstoRead: Classroom Edition #2

This is the second post in a series where teachers tell us how they celebrate reading in their classrooms. Today’s post is written by Ms. Bagai, a fifth grade teacher from California.

 

 

When I asked my 5th graders to give reasons why they read, here were some of

their replies:

“I can read anywhere.”

“Reading helps me learn.”

“It’s a fun thing to do when I’m bored.”

“Books help me answer questions I don’t know.”

“It can help me solve problems.”

“Reading extends my vocabulary.”

“When I read, I think and imagine about what I’m reading.”

“When I read something interesting, I become curious and I want to read more and more.”

“The facts inside books are fascinating and amazing.”

“Reading improves my English.”

“It’s part of getting me ready for college or a job.”

 

What are some of your students’ reasons to read?

    Great! I especially like the comment that reading is fun if you are bored. Not many kids say that any more. They seem to all want to be hooked up to a video game. Nice job, Seema!
