My Students

Have you ever lost yourself in a good book? Students get so wrapped up in technology that they often forget about reading. Having literature that is engaging and inviting keeps students' noses inside a book.

My school is a Title 1 school and services a large number of economically disadvantaged students.

These students need ways to reinforce their learning in math, reading, and science. My students love to read good books and need more interesting and engaging titles that they can read together, collaborate with their peers, and expand their learning.

My Project

My students need high interest reading and multiple copies of these books (27 titles, 4 copies each) in order to create reading groups to read and collaborate together. These books will allow groups of students to work together, listen and share their reading, work together to complete activities such as thinking maps, illustrated book reports, and other engaging literature circle activities. Having four copies of each copy will allow for more groups to be formed and larger numbers of books to be read over the course of the year.

These books will capture my students' interest and help them develop a love of learning.

My students would love to have some "good reads" coming their way. These high interest books will be a great way to get them hooked on reading.
