As we begin our second year, we have spent time reflecting and setting goals. We are extremely proud of our accomplishments in this first year, but we hope to grow even more over this next year. Here are some of our plans:
1. Review more professional books and middle grade novels
We did a survey a couple of months ago asking what our readers would like to see more of, and both professional texts and middle grade were at the top of the list. We take your feedback seriously, and we will work on this over the next year.
2. More teaching posts
We also learned from the survey that our teacher reflection posts are appreciated by our viewers. We plan to post more of these in the future.
3. Update About Us
Our lives have changed tremendously over the last year, so we definitely need to get into our “About Us” page and update the information.
4. Update and add to our “Navigating Literary Elements” page
We have recommendations for setting, characterization, and language under our literary elements page, but have plans to add conflict, voice, and imagery. Based on the books we read this year, we will adjust a few of our recommendations to keep the titles new and fresh!
5. Best For…. List
We are often asked about the BEST books for each grade level, so want to compile grade-specific lists to help teachers build and adjust their curricula.
Cheers to a new year!
