Slide 2: 

Why this course?

Slide 3: 

This course is going to help me not only with new ways to reach my students and help them enjoy reading more, but also give me ideas on how to make good choices in selecting books and reading materials to excite and engage my students.

Slide 4: 

Myself as a reader

Slide 5: 

I love to read. I always have. These days I don’t have the time for it the way I would like but I manage to sneak time in when I can.When I was younger I enjoyed reading and being read to. I would lock myself away in my room and read until I was told I had to go to bed! That is probably why I love teaching reading to my students!

Slide 6: 

What is my favorite book?

Slide 7: 

My favorite children’s book now is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. Every time I read this book it brings tears and I look at it more as a book for everyone not just kids. Goodnight Moon is another favorite of mine. I like picture books for the fact that you can do so many activities with them and really engage the students.

A few of my favorite authors: : 

Robert Munsch Judith Viorst Barbara Park (I love Junie B.!) Joseph Bruchac Jon Scieszka Tomie dePaola Andrew Clements Jan Brett Shel Silverstein A few of my favorite authors:

Slide 9: 

How do I get children to read?

Slide 10: 

It is important to make reading fun and exciting! Even children who love to read can get bored with the same old thing. I try to find material that will be of interest to the child(ren) and make it relevant to them. It is important to read to them and with them and to really listen to their thoughts and feelings as well as sharing my own.

Me! : 

First off you may be wondering about the shamrocks. My blood and heritage may be German and Dutch but my heart is forever Irish. So I try to always have that spirit with me wherever I go! I live in Mitchell, SD and currently work at Gertie Belle Rogers Elementary as our computer lab supervisor. I see all 421 of our students 2 times a week so I am always busy! I love being outdoors, listening to music, spending time with my family and yes, I am a Gleek! Me!
