Help me give my students the books they have requested for our new Boys Book Club. They made their own wish lists that included science magazines to read together, and comic books sets for guided reading!
Can you imagine being in a new country as a 5th grade student and having to learn in a language you've never heard before? Well, our students are PROOF that it can be done! Together, 100% of students have learned to read and write in English last year. We grew 75 reading levels as a class in just the last two months of school. It took dedication, hard work, teamwork, and learning from our mistakes.
We want to ensure success with this year's students by creating a new Book Club for boys, the subgroup of students struggling the most with reading.
This project encompasses the wish list of our students, who put together their own book lists that they want to see in our library. We are in need of high-interest books to ensure our boys, especially, are cultivating a love for reading, and helping each other learn through this new Book Club for Boys!
At our school we have noticed that there is an over-representation of boys diagnosed with learning disabilities. In order to curb this trend, and help support intervention inside of the classroom, we have invited our boys to launch a new Boys Book Club this year wherein the boys get to choose their own materials (Scholastic SuperScience Readers and Comic Book sets).
Please help our students grow as readers and flourish in the classroom by supporting their dream reading club.
They are obsessed with animals and science, as well as comic books sets from Amazon. Please help us launch the new Book Club.
