Do not make them read it.
Do not make the decoding accuracy or details the point of the exercise.
Do not make it a competition.
Do not make them finish every book they start.
Do not make the message in the story the point.
Do not follow up with entertaining activities loosely based on the story.

I had to record these. They are so counter-cultural in schools. If we want to create a culture of readers, we need to take away competition, rules, measurement. All the things, that Tiggers do best! 🙂
