Series Reading establishes a school-wide culture that values and promotes avid wide reading. As students read series books, they deepen their connection with characters, increase the amount of time they are reading independently and therefore, their comprehension increases. Series reading is especially beneficial for English Language Learners since they are familiar with the characters, settings and the vocabulary that the author uses. That familiarity helps increase student success. Since beginning this program last year, we now have over 70 series available and are in need of more books to add to these collections. Students are encouraged to "Take a Starring Role in Series Reading" and complete reading series to earn points. This has proven to be an excellent incentive for wide, independent reading that has impacted the lives of students, teachers and parents and they discover the joy in reading!
