Books For My Buccaneers!

My students need leveled reading books to practice independent reading within their individual reading levels.

My Students

I teach kindergarten at a K - 8 school in Arizona. Our population is a combination of middle-class, hard working families. Our student population has a diverse community of cultures, academic needs, and special education students. We have a proactive staff and community that work collaborative in meeting the needs of all of our students.

My kindergarten students are curious, interactive, and engaged learners that love that to read!

Many of them were exposed to books long before kindergarten, read to by parents, grandparents, and other family members! The best part of my job is watching when the realization comes to them, that they too are readers and now can read books all by themselves!

My Project

Literacy is the foundation of all learning! Leveled readers are books that kindergarten students can read and they are used in a variety of ways in my class. I use readers to instruct in small guided reading groups to move students to the next level of reading, and I use leveled readers as a component of our take home nightly reading program.

Research shows that when students have success in reading, they are encouraged and inspired to read more.

When text levels are too easy or too hard, students begin to disengage and become reluctant readers. Leveled readers provide a variety of books, within a wide range of levels to meet the needs of all of my learners. Leveled books have clear pictures, simple text patterns, and sight words that students are learning to recognize and memorize. They provide another systematic resource in building strong readers.

My students love to read and there are just never enough books! Through repeated use books become damaged, they lose staples, lose pages, and simply begin to fall apart. It's time to replenish leveled readers in my class to provide more texts to practice, refine, and grow my students reading skills and nourish their love for learning!
