My middle school students are in need of classroom materials that are age-appropriate and of high-interest. However, these materials must also meet their instructional, academic, and cognitive needs. Oftentimes, materials for pre-and beginning readers are geared towards a younger audience, as young children are the typical audience when it comes to learning to read. However, there are older children with learning difficulties that are learning to read, as well, such as my students. The typical materials are deemed "babyish" by those students and can be embarrassing when witnessed by peers. The books that I have selected are more typical-looking to the average middle school student. I would like to use them to practice decoding and fluency in lessons. In addition, I think these texts would peak their interest and, therefore, make comprehension activities more engaging and, thus, have a more lasting impression on the elements of literature that students would be learning. Finally, I think that these texts are ones that my students would not mind carrying around and being seen with. As I have mentioned, a lot of the texts that they can read are not ones that they want to be seen having. These texts look like any other book that a middle school student would have on the outside. However, the actual level that they are written at is for beginning readers. These books could make my students feel both successful and not self-conscious.
