Get Caught Reading!

Send your photos of summer reading to me and I'll include them in a Summer Get Caught Reading post!  I won't put your name with the picture, but be sure to ask your parents if it's okay for me to post your picture on the blog.  

This is the photo that inspired me to collect pictures of my students reading.  In the fall of 2011, a friend and I were walking near the library.  As we started down the street, I noticed three boys sitting on skateboards.  As we got closer, I realized that they were all reading, and one of them was my student.  With their permission, I snapped this great picture.

Ever since then, I find myself snapping photos of students reading.
That fall I had several students who sat outside the classroom door
enjoying a few moments with a book before the start of school.  

Last year at curriculum night, I invited your parents to send me pictures of you lost in a book.  Here are photos I received this year (2012-13)
from parents who made my teacher heart sing
when they captured their child reading and shared it with me.

 What could be a cozier than curling up with a book, a blanket and a furry friend on a rainy day?

This student was caught reading in a cedar tree 30 feet above the ground!
