There are days that I struggle with my confidence in my teaching ability.
Today, however, I discovered something...if I can hook them, they'll love reading. I just have to find the right material. One of my boys just can't seem to finish a book, but I noticed one day he could tell me all about his graphic novel that he was reading. So, using a system that we have at school, I located some books, printed out the list, placed them on hold with our library system and picked up two today. He's almost finished with one of them. In fact, he stayed in at recess to read...WHAT??? I could barely get him to do anything else. He just wanted to read.
Score one for the teaching side!
