This year in our school we have begun integrated units and have been using novels for some of our work. Students have been reluctant to read in the past and we are finding that it is due to them not having engaging texts to read. After beginning these novel studies using books that we knew students would enjoy their love of reading has grown! From informational texts to literature, they are loving them all! It is my hope to continue this trend with my current class and future 4th graders so that I can help to create lifelong readers! I feel that increasing the number of engaging texts in my classroom will help with that! These materials will be used for instruction but also as books for students to read for pleasure. Students need time during there day to just sit and read or listen to a good book!
