It was during SSR and I started watching her read. This girl had chosen one of the best books in the book room. She was reading Awakening, book 1 in Robin Wasserman's Chasing Yesterday series. At first I thought she must really be enjoying it. She was buzzing through the pages.
Then I really started watching. She wasn't getting anything. All the action and adventure was lost to her. The fear and loneliness of main character might as well have not been there. She never gave a thought about the fact that she could be in the book.
The main character in this series is a young girl that faces an incredible challenge. The books are filled with scenes that bring the reader into the book. But this reader is reading too fast. Her brain isn't keeping up with the pages.
The reader isn't stopping to
When you think about it, she's not really reading. But she sure can turn the pages fast. Is this post about you? Could it be?
