Do you survey your kiddos to find out what their interests are so that you can guide them to books they'll love? It's a quick an easy way to help you lead your students to being lifelong readers!
As Donalyn Miller says in her book, "[s]tudents may not be able to describe what types of books they might like to read, but if I have knowledge of their personal interests, I will be able to find books that match a topic they enjoy."
She has a couple of great surveys in her book, but they are more geared towards intermediate students. I re-worked them to create a survey that would work with my firsties. Hope you find it useful in your classroom!
