Student Reading Survey

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!

I like this, Becca! I like how you included general questions like, "Did you read this summer?". Great job!

I love your reflection on "The Book Whisperer". I'm on chapter 3 now. It is so inspirational and really makes me reflect on my teaching. I, too, created a survey that I posted on my blog yesterday. Check it out here: I teach 1st grade so it is intended for the parents to complete about their child.
