I sat down and called over Mr. Captain Underpants Superfan. He stopped by his desk and picked up another book. He handed me this Captain Underpants #12 book and proudly said, "I'm finished." He completed the entire series, and now I could return the book back to the library. He was also reading a different book by Raina Telgemeier. The book he chose is a favorite that has been quickly making its way through the 4th grade classroom.
I wanted to ask Mr. Captain Underpants Superfan how and why he was able accomplish the plan he'd made for Spring Break reading. (Our last reading conference was creating a plan for reading over Break. He decided that he needed to finish Captain Underpants #12 and then read Smile or Sisters by Raina Telgemeier.) Here's what he said:
- I found a good reading spot.
- I read books that I actually like.
- I read for a long time.
