Today's focus was Creating a Reading Culture hosted by Donalyn Miller of The Book Whisperer. She shares six ways to create a reading culture at home.
I also enjoyed reading a post from Kristin McIlhagga of Children's Literature Crossroads. She shares ideas to create a reading culture with preservice teachers.
You may also want to check out the post from Beth Stilborn of By Word of Beth. She shares ideas to create a reading culture from a distance.
There are even more posts at the Share-a-Story website about creating reading cultures.
Every day of the week there is also a chance for bloggers to participate in the event by reflecting upon reading with the Writing @ Reading challenge. I have participated in this way the past two years and found it very beneficial in developing my ideas and thoughts about reading.
The writing prompt I chose to reflect upon today is:
Share a picture of what your ideal/favorite reading space looks like.
My children and I have read books in many different places.
|A ballet studio to celebrate Katharine Holabird's birthday.|
|A clock shop to celebrate Pat Hutchins' birthday.|
|A dock near a large ship to celebrate Edward Ardizzone's birthday.|
|A park to celebrate Leslie Patricelli's birthday.|
|A zoo to celebrate Janell Cannon's birthday.|
|The backyard to celebrate Marc Simont's birthday.|
|The driveway to celebrate Erica Perl's birthday.|
But, my three favorite places to read books are:
|At the library with my children.|
|At a school in front of a group of students.|
|In bed with my children before they go to sleep.|
