Strategies to Help Kids Love Reading

Barb Gilman (known as @barbinnebraska) has a classroom rich with a love of reading. Today she talks about strategies any teacher can use to help kids love reading. She starts with a sign posting what she's reading now! I've heard other educators (including my friend Todd Nesloney) who have teachers in their schools post what they are reading. 

This episode is sponsored by 3D Bear. Join me, Jaime Donally of #ARVRinEdu chat and some excited AR classroom enthusiasts on Wednesday, December 19 at 9 pm ET for a free webinar about best practices in AR Classroom teaching.
