November chain
We read 70 choice novels last month!  

Each link in that brown paper chain represents a book finished during the month of November.

Each day, we read our choice novels for the first ten minutes of class.  No matter what.  I encourage abandonment of books that don’t quite fit, I conference with students, and I model reading for students.  We practice reading the things we like to get better at reading the things we might not like.  

I keep a chart of our choice novel progress on one of our bulletin boards.
