My fifth grade students love to read! They attend a title one, turn around, public school. Our school is striving to help students make academic gains across subject areas with an intense focus on literacy, which is the cornerstone of our school improvement plan. Over the past two years, we have shown growth in state-wide testing, and we need some more materials to continue making such gains. Our district has given us a Plugged In reading program to enhance our reader's workshop block, but students have expressed interest in reading new and different titles. Being "plugged in" allows students to listen to listen to a fluent reader while they follow along in a book. Research shows that listening to literature raises comprehension levels as it allows students to think about what they are reading, instead of thinking about decoding words. This program is just what my students need, but their supplies and selection of books need to be updated!
