Igniting a Passion for Reading

Okay....so I had the awesome opportunity to go to a workshop where Dr. Steven Layne presented!! He is the BOMB! Talk about Igniting a Passion! He ignited a FIRE in me! I am so excited and want my entire school to be JUST AS EXCITED. My mind has been into overdrive. So many of his ideas are CHEAP and purposeful. If you don't have a copy of his book, Igniting a Passion for Reading, you should get one!!

"It should be every teacher's aim to give every child a love of reading, a hunger for it that will stay with him through all the years of his life. If a child has that he will acquire the mechanical part without difficulty. " (Mayne ~1915)
