I am a teacher at a charter school in Chicago and am interested in building real readers through critical analysis of literature and writing in all its forms.

Create-Your-Own Summer Reading
School is almost out, and this week we'll be talking about why, how, and what to read over the summer. So, in order to encourage my students to practice what we've been working on in school while they are on summer vacation, I made a book using Story Jumper (www.storyjumper.com). The web site was super easy and fun to use! I will definitely be using it again next year.
Read the book I'll be sending home with my students who are working on basic reading skills: http://www.storyjumper.com/book/index/468782/Read-with-Ms-Cleaver
How are you going to encourage your students to read this summer?
