Have you ever met a group of funny, playful 5th graders? Imagine you have just entered a classroom full of students on various reading levels. Everyone is looking for that just right book that they can read and understand. I have that classroom.
My students want to read and ENJOY a book they love.
Many of them do not have access to interesting books outside of school, and are unable to experience many things outside of their own community. Books are the avenue to take them to the unknown.
I chose a variety of books that students said would catch their interests when inventoried. These are titles that they would read without being made to do so. These resources will hopefully engage students during independent reading time and down time after assignments are completed.
Organization is KEY!
With that being said I have also added in some book bins to help organize the books in a manner that will make it easier for students to find their desired title. There are several popular series students desire and some books that they can relate to personally. I can not wait for them to begin enjoying these wonderful titles.
