It has been proven that students need to be reading "just right" books- books that are on their reading level. I teach second grade at a school where about 70% of students are free or reduced lunch and we have a large ESL population. My students greatly differ in reading levels, ranging from a kindergarten level all the way up to 4th grade! I am a fairly new teacher (4 years experience) and my current classroom library is one that was inherited and in bad shape. I want to build my classroom library with leveled readers so that my students can find books that are "just right" for them. Having books that are too hard only frustrates my children, and having books that are too easy doesn't help them grow as a reader. I would like to start by getting leveled readers for second grade, but my big wish is to have k-3 in order to meet the needs for all of my students. Any additions to our classroom library would be welcome and appreciated. New books, that are just right to read, are motivating for children. Motivation is half the battle!
