Reading will give you SUPER POWERS!

This is a post I did back in June, but my new kids (that’s you) haven’t had the pleasure of seeing my blog yet.  I figured, “What better way to introduce them to my blog than my post about Reading Will Give You SUPER POWERS!”  Enjoy your first glimpse at your crazy teacher’s blog!  P.S. Check out what LeBron is reading….are you ready to start OUR Hunger Games unit next week???  I am!

The NBA playoffs are over, and LeBron James has the ring he has wanted for so long.  I am pretty sure I have never seen more 3-pointers in one game than I did in that last game.  Now I know what you are saying, “Ms. B.,  you said you don’t really watch basketball.”  I don’t – normally.  Something happened though on the Heat’s ride to playoffs…I kept hearing how LeBron was  READING before and after his games!  Even my Twitter feed talked about LeBron reading the Hunger Games.  I watched an interview and read some articles, and he talked about how reading was helping him get focused before games and calmed him after the games.  Given his stats in the finals, I’ve decided reading must have given him SUPER POWERS! Now you KNOW I am all about the team…there would be no championship for the Heat without the entire team, but LeBron’s triple-double in the final game was something to see!  Hmmm….maybe there is something to this reading thing after all?  Why don’t YOU try it!  Pick up a book – any book – and see where it takes you!
