#25inFive – August 2018

During the month of July, I attempted to follow my own advice and read for a suggested twenty minutes a day. I encourage my students to read for that amount of time each day to make consistent progress on their Independent Reading unit – Reading Bingo.

This graphic finds itself in every one of my course syllabi and is reviewed throughout the school year to encourage students to always be reading.

I did not read every single day, but I enjoyed setting aside at least twenty minutes a day to read.

When I found #25infive on #bookstagram, I figured this could be redemption for July!

I thought it was an added bonus that the #25infive Readathon happened to begin on National Book Lovers Day! #Bookstagram was loaded with tons of stacks, books, and people advocating for the joy and benefits of reading in on place. It was awesome!

Here are my stats for #25infive – August 2018:

Thursday, August 9 – 1 hour

Friday, August 10 – 1 hour

Saturday, August 11 – 40 minutes

Sunday, August 12 – 1 hour

Monday, August 13 – 1 hour and 20 minutes

  • Continued reading The Big Sleep

Total – 5 hours / 25 hours


Looking forward to making more progress on the next Readathon!

Happy Reading!
