Sharing Great Sites

Boy Playing on PumpkinHappy Monday Willard Teachers!  It is hard to believe September is this far gone.  I know you have been busy because I see the great work displayed in the halls!

From time-to-time, I will share with you some of my favorite literacy sites.  I hope you will also share with us if you find one you particularly like.  For this month, I am sharing Choice Literacy, a site that has a lot of great ideas and discussions.  Part of the sight is free and the other part is a subscription site.  I hope you enjoy the free ideas for Book Chit-Chat and the discussion that goes with it.

Choice Literacy

Thinking Ahead in Your Reading


  • Are there any series, authors or genres that you’ve read that you would like to read more of?
  • Is there an author, series, or genre that you haven’t read yet but you’d like to try?
  • Is there a book that you quit earlier this year that you might want to go back to and try again?
  • Is there something that you want to try that you weren’t ready or in the mood for earlier in your reading life?
  • Is there a book that has caught your eye?
  • Is there a book that you might want to read because you read or heard about it in a review?
  • Is there a book that a friend has recommended that sounds like a good fit?
  • Is there a nonfiction topic that you’d like to read?
  • Is there a poetry book that you’d like to read more of?
  • Are there any books that you’ve read that you’d like to reread?
  • Is there an author, genre or series that we’ve read in read-aloud that you’d like to try on your own?
  • Are there any books in your box that you have changed your mind about – books that you want to put away?
  • What types of books are you in the mood for?
  • Are you in the mood for long or short books?
  • What kind of time will you have this spring? Is it a busy time? Will you be sitting at a brother or sister’s sports practices?
  • Are there books that would be better for you to save for summer?

Don’t forget to share those great sites! 

Have a great week and keep on reading and writing!
