      @Biblionasium has been great motivator in my classroom — Ss make recommendations 2 e/o and “book talk” constantly

    everyday fun!

    Do you know? The best predictor of reading achievement is
    the amount of time students spend in
    independent reading (1)

    Reading 20 minutes a day =
    1.8 million words a year =
    1000 new vocabulary words

    So ... pledge to TAKE 20! Reading 20 minutes a day can make a big difference!

    • Read at home.
    • Read wherever you are. Look around - read things like posters, billboards, signs.
    • Make it fun - pick out books purely for pleasure reading.
