So I would like to confess something.
I have been reading ahead of schedule in our book study. The Book Whisperer is just such a good book! I couldn't help it. ☺
As I was reading the first whisper I just knew I needed to make a 2nd grade friendly reading interest survey. I think I will be giving this to the kids the first day of school. After we talk about reading and I show them our classroom library. After I do a read aloud. After I read all the questions and we discuss them.
I am actually excited about doing this. I hope it will give me insight into my new students. I want to connect with them through reading better than I did last year. I love reading about the connection Donalyn Miller has with her students through their shared love of reading.
Here is what I made if you are interested!
