In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
As I was subbing for my good friend in her 5th grade class today, I snapped a photo of this poster. This was always my philosophy when I taught 3rd grade. I would always give my students time daily for independent reading in books of their choice. Students who read and read and read, do become better readers!
