Setting challenges for myself have never been my strong suit. I’m actually pretty bad at setting goals and making plans and schedules to stay on top of them and finish them. But I am determined to follow through with this challenge. One because I love reading and I think I might enjoy it more than other challenges and two because it will eventually help my dream career of teaching.
I’ve decided to start myself off at a decent pace to begin with. Every week I will…..
- Read at least 10 picture books, preferably suitable for Kindergarten students
- Read at least 1 children’s chapter book
- Remember to add them to Goodreads if they are on the site (been getting pretty bad at that lately)
- Try as hard as I can to get in four hours of reading a week, even if it means reading more than 11 books
I’ve decided to do this challenge because I’d like to be Kindergarten teacher and I plan to start a list of books to bring into my future classroom so that’s the reason I want to read 10 picture books. The reason I want to read one chapter book a week is because I really enjoy reading them, I know Kindergartners wont be able to read them but I just want to read them for me.
I look forward to developing a long list of my favorite books to share with my future students. I feel as if the more I get involved into the books the students will get more into the books as well. I want my classroom to be fun and want the kids to get excited when they hear I’m their teacher and if showing my excitement to books I read during school will help then I will do it!
The hardest part about this challenge for me is to remember to put them on Goodreads. I know that seems like a simple thing to do but I tend to forge the little things most. I plan on achieving my goals by writing out in my planner when to read what books each day and when to write about them.
I know if I keep on task and not procrastinate then this challenge will easily be accomplished! I wish you all the best with your own challenges! Happy reading!!
