This is my first year implementing the Reading Workshop approach in my 5th and 6th grade ELA classes. Because of this, students were getting used to having independent reading time each day. One of my reluctant reader boys was struggling to find books he enjoyed, and so after questioning about some interests and more, I suggested Rick Riordan's Kane Chronicles series. He ate it up, and a few days later, I received an email from his mom. She told me that he asked for a ton of those books for Christmas, and he had never done anything like that before. On Christmas morning, I got another message - a picture of this student, smiling ear to ear, holding up his new treasured books! What an awesome Christmas present that was to me!
