New School Year InterviewMe: Describe the last year in three words.
Smarty: Fun,… strict,…a little boring sometimes.
Me: How do you want your new year to be?
Smarty: Fun, bookish,… new!
Me: What is your biggest hope for this year?
Smarty: That I will learn something that I don’t know yet.
Me: What do you want to learn?
Me: Do you have any worries about going back to school?
Smarty: No… I am happy. I just hope that Mrs L will be my teacher and that some of my friends are in my class. (Her wish came true, she will be in Mrs L's class)
Me: What do you think your favorite subject will be?
Smarty (looking at me funny): Why, reading, of course!
Me: What do you want to do better this year?
Smarty: Not to forget my stuff in school.
Books for “Bookish” ChildrenI loved the list of favorite children books from teachers shared last week by Buggy and Buddy. A lot of our favorites appear here and a few books that Smarty hasn’t read yet. I certainly hope that her love of reading continues to burn bright this school year. I also hope that maybe her third grade teacher manages to restore her interest in non-fiction books, because she is “all in” for fantasy books right now.
