Developing literacy skills and the joy of reading and comprehending texts are major goals of our small, rural town school of around 100 students in grades K-8. Ninety-one percent of the students participate in the free/reduced breakfast and lunch program, and forty-one percent reside in single parent or guardian homes. Therefore, we face a tremendous challenge in motivating reading with students who have no books at home and little parental stimulation in reading for pleasure. In my first grade classroom of 16 students, I use a variety of literacy materials to build reading skills through shared reading. I motivate students by building an atmosphere that fosters closeness and unity, creating an enjoyment for reading and providing visual and tactile stimulation. The only Big Books I have for shared reading are old and are falling apart after many years of use. We desperately need some new Big Book titles for Emergent, Early and fluent readers from across the curriculum (language arts, social studies, science, health) to develop literacy at all levels. Thank you very much for reading my proposal.
