Reflection: Unit Planning Sorting our Features - Section 2: Magazine Reading/Conferring


I love switching to magazine reading! It does one of two things: it gives kids a break from longer, dense novels. Or, it reaffirms kids love of reading novels. Both are awesome. Sometimes it seems like some of my more reluctant readers feel like they are "getting away with something" when they bring in their Sports Illustrated or Seventeen. I just love seeing them engaged in what they're reading.
