(click above for other Saturday Sayings)
I secretly nabbed this shot a few weeks ago. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. All I knew is that it was priceless. When I came across the above quote while looking for a good Saturday Sayings for the day, I knew I had the perfect picture to use.
There are certainly lots of ways to promote choice for readers. Location is just one of the many. During Read to Self, my readers get to choose where they sit. As long as they're not close to anyone and their spot allows them to be the best reader they can be, they can sit on desks, under desks, under tables, in corners, sprawled out on the carpet, and obviously even on their heads. As an adult reader, I'm the same way. I might not read on my head, but making my own choices about reading motivates me. Kids are no different.
