My students are part of a Title 1 School. Many of my students are from low-income, multi-family homes. We are in a rural area and have a focus on reading. We put our students and their families first. We are always promoting positive choices and rewarding successes. Most of our students only get to read while at school or bring a book from school. Some kids don't even have internet due to the rural area.
Most of our students are fighting to be their best despite their situation.
In today's world, everything is digital. Kids use laptops, smartphones, and tablets to play games, social media, and read books. Sometimes, all the digital media makes us isolated.
I want to bring my classroom together by doing group read alouds with great chapter books.
I want to use the chapter books to help the kids read together and do book activities as a group and independently. I envision my students being engaged and looking forward to what is going happen next in the books we read.
I feel that this will increase their love of reading, while also helping their social skills by working together.
