Books that Spark Kid's Interest

My students need chapter books that spark their interest.

My Students

Do you have to read books that are of no interest to you? That is the problem that many students are facing in my classroom.

Many of my third graders come from homes that struggle to make ends meet and do not have books to read.

They need to get all their reading material from using my classroom library. I would love to offer more books for my students that include topics of interest they are interested in.

My Project

I have requested chapter books that spark my students' interests. I would like my students to take ownership in their reading and have books that they enjoy to read at their fingertips! These books will help my students who struggle with comprehension because they can relate with the characters in the stories, which deepens their understanding of what they read.

It is so important that my students read everyday and read at grade level.

These books would help so many of my students become more interested in reading. I want them to read for the love of reading, not because it is an assignment.
