Flashlight Friday is one of our favorite activities each week. Because I want my students to develop a true love of reading, I provide silent reading time in a special, comfortable, and fun environment on Fridays. Reminiscent of those wonderful nights when a kid crawls under the covers to finish a chapter, to see what is going to happen next, or to finish the book, Flashlight Fridays are magical. I can almost see the love of reading shining on their faces as I look around the room. That's magical to a teacher.
