L-O-V-E for Reading
Creating a love for reading is one of the most important things we can instill in our students. However, age-old book reports often encourage quite the opposite. Fortunately, there are other ways we can test our students’ reading comprehension without making them write the dreaded book report. Try oral reports. Have students express their likes and dislikes about the book to you or other students. Another option is journaling. Have students write a journal entry after reading each chapter of the book showcasing what they learned,their thoughts and likes and dislikes.
