I need to make 4 cakes to celebrate students who met their reading goals. Any suggestion on some good " reading phrases".
"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader. ----- Margaret Fuller
"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island." Walt Disney
Reading is an art form, and every man can be an artist. ------Edwin Louis Cole
He that loves reading has everything within his reach. -----William Godwin
WOW! Love these.. Thanks so much!!!!
Wow, debi....awesome help on this question!
I'm a collector of quotes and I think reading is THE most important thing we can teach our kids. Not just the how-to but the love and passion of it.
"If you can read .... you can do anything!" -----Debi Brim (to her kids their entire lives!!)
Here are some quotes about books and reading that I like:
Some of them might be too long to put on a cake and some might not be understood by your kids depending on their age:
When I got [my] library card, that was when my life began.
~ Rita Mae Brown ~
There are worse crimes than burning books.
One of them is not reading them.
~ Joseph Brodsky ~
The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you'll go.
~ Dr. Seuss ~
I am not a speed reader. I am a speed understander.
~ Isaac Asimov ~
For friends... do but look upon good Books: they are true friends, that will neither flatter nor dissemble. ~Francis Bacon
Books are embalmed minds. ~Bovee
Reading - the best state yet to keep absolute loneliness at bay. ~William Styron
Reading well is one of the great pleasures that solitude can afford you. ~Harold Bloom
Congratulations to your readers for meeting their goals. It's hard to get some students to like to read because their confidence in their ability is low and some of them find looking at black marks on white pages to be overwhelming from a purely mental processing perspective. Others have a hard time transmitting written words to images in their minds which is key to getting them to like to do it!
OMG, those really cooll, thanks
