Are you doing anything special the weekend of June 4-6, 2010? If not, you might want to participate in the Fifth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge at MotherReader. Read books from fifth grade level up for a 48 hour period during that weekend and blog about it. Sounds like a fun event, with prizes and everything.
One teacher said she is participating in the event as a way to show she reads herself (on her own time), and to get her students interested in reading. What an awesome idea! Maybe your students could help you pick the books to read.
Hum, I wonder if I should try it? I’m only flying across country in the middle of that weekend. Something tells me it would be best to try for next year. I will be checking in, though.
Let me how it goes if you try it.
