I have a few struggling readers who are below grade level in reading. Our class reads for 20 minutes each day and most of my students love this time, but for my struggling few they hate it. It's a fight to find a book that they want to read. It's hard for them to see their friends reading what they call "fun books." These books are on grade level or above; and they want to read those same books, but struggle. Many of these students need books that are read to them at grade level to help boost their own reading skills. I had a student come into my class this year which I am continually trying to encourage to find a book. Half way through our year this student comes with an iPod and a book which is on grade level, but slightly above his level. He sat at his desk and followed along in his book. When reading time was done he argued with me about stopping, wow I thought this would never happen! There are a few of my other students who would greatly benefit from audio reading as well.
