4. Be Readers Yourself!
Having a teacher that reads matters!

Having a teacher that reads "means they can recommend better books to you and be more helpful. They're more knowledgeable. It makes you feel like they are more involved and don't just use silent reading as a time to get work done. They actually care about and enjoy what they do."

"Reading should not be presented to a child as a chore, a duty. It should be offered as a gift." - Katie DiCamillo

9. Talk and Write About Books
TALK about books as well as write about them. Be as “real life” as possible. When was the last time you made a diorama when you finished a book? At Dublin Literacy Conference, Donalyn Miller said, “I’m not a language arts and crafts teacher.” What DID you do the last time you finished a book? You probably wrote or talked about it!

Talk and Write Time

6. Classroom Library

Kelly Gallagher tells a story in his book READICIDE about trying to book talk a memoir by Lois Duncan chronicling her daughter’s murder. He knew it was high interest, and he knew a lot of students had seen I Know What You Did Last Summer. The library had 3 copies; Gallagher had none. The only way he could get kids to check out the books was to bring them into the classroom to the kids. Immediately providing books to students in the classroom is one of the cornerstones for happy readers.
