Last month, I made seven literacy resolutions for 2011. Each month, as part of a way to hold myself accountable, I hope to provide an update on my progress.
I’ve been a bit slow going this month, but I’ve made some strides.
In February, I’ve read almost every day for myself. There were a few days I didn’t read for me, but I did read to my kids. I’m still working on this – making time to read for me!
I’ve really enjoyed keeping a Reader’s Notebook because it allows me to see what progress I have made. This has been exciting for me, because I have never recorded what I’ve read before.
I’m starting to read more MG and YA, which is out of my comfort zone only because I’ve read mainly picture books for the last 8 years – next on my TBR pile is Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shephard
I have not read professional literature in a timely manner, nor have I begun to write again. I hope to become better at this in the next month. A goal to work towards!
My reading community has increased tremendously as I joined the Centurions of 2011 Challenge on Facebook, Goodreads, and began a book club with a group of friends. And of course, my community here at Literacy Toolbox!
So far in 2011, I have read 20 books towards my 111 book goal (Centurions of 2011 Challenge) and I am currently reading Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua.
