Silent Reading Idea

I have not had any reading ideas the past few days. Plus I have been spending all my time reading the last book in the Twilight series. LOL.

This little gem comes from an e-mail I received from
Mailbox Magazine and I liked it so much I wanted to share. Hope you enjoy it!

Turn silent reading into everyone’s favorite weekly activity:


• Monday—Cuddle Up and Read: Have each student bring a stuffed animal to class.
• Tuesday—Jazz Up Your Day With a Good Book: Encourage each student to wear her craziest socks.
• Wednesday—Reading Is a Bright Idea: Have each student bring his sunglasses.
• Thursday—Hats Off to Great Books: Let each student wear her favorite hat.
• Friday—We’ve Got an Appetite for Reading: Encourage each student to bring a snack to enjoy during silent reading.


After a week’s worth of silent reading fun, have students come up with themes to encourage weekend reading too.

Happy Reading!
