Wow, just wow.

I stumbled across Reading Vacation, a blog by an eleven-year-old girl,  last weekend.  She very intelligently reviews and talks about books.  I am blown away!  Amazed! Astounded!

Ok, enough of that.  Anyway, I can’t wait to share this with my students.  I may even have to encourage a few of them to get going on their own reading review blogs.  I maintain a class one where we post reviews, but I would love to see some of my readers branch out on their own.

    That was impressive! We keep a book response blog (read aloud and lit circle responses), and this has me thinking about expanding our scope. Thank you for sharing!

    Hey Katie,

    Thank you for this sweet blog post. I see you teach fourth and fifth grade. I started Reading Vacation last March while I was in fifth grade. You absolutely should see if any of your students want to start their own blog.

    A blog is a lot of work, but it is so fun! I have met so many nice people – authors, publishers, other bloggers, teachers, and librarians.

    Happy Reading!
