  1. I love holiday books. Even if they are not for the December holidays, they are great read alouds and there are wonderful lessons to be learned from the books.

  2. I love the new twist of the Twelve Days of Christmas. In fact I am going over to the Books A Million store in my hometown to see if I get a copy to read to my students and Grandchildren during this Holiday season.

  3. The Pearson 7-Minute Challenge is something I would like to initiate after the Christmas break for the students, and for myself.

  4. I’m interested in the 7 minute challenge. I’d like to update my classroom library so the holiday books would be nice.

  5. I really like the idea of the 7 minute challenge and as the supervisor of several teachers, I plan to do a department wide stop and read time after the winter holiday break. Thanks for the idea! So simple, yet so important!
