Book Sets for Success

My students need literature circle book sets to continue our authentic literacy studies.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are such an amazing bunch who love to read. Our novel study time has become a class favorite and it is common to hear an outcry of "no" when it is time to put the book away. I absolutely love that they get so in to the story that we all escape into another world. To see reading come alive is what I live for as an educator.

With such a love for reading, my students have read most of the books I have in my library already.

They are craving for some more choice in their literature circle sets.

My Project

We are about half way through our first literature circle cycle and the students are already setting their eyes on the next books they want to read. Some are not finding a book they are incredibly interested to read. My goal is to change this!

These book sets will give my students the opportunity to continue applying our reading and writing standards in authentic ways.

We read these books independently through the week and meet once a week to discuss the text and share our jobs for the week. This is a student run meeting and the kids are really getting into it. These books will provide material that is interesting to them.
