My students need books and comprehension materials to read and practice during workshop, so they can increase both fluency and comprehension.
Do you remember having books and stories to read when you were growing up? My students need books that have the content they need to know, but delivered at their current reading level. They also need interesting reading to help build their comprehension.
My students are from the inner city in California.
The school is a school wide Title I school and 100% of the students receive free lunch. My student are full of energy and want to learn they just need more tools to help them. They all need to be able to access the content at there current levels.
The leveled readers will help the students have access to the content at their own level. The comprehension activities will help the students to practice and learn comprehension skills through content reading. I will be able to work with them in small groups and they will also be able to continue the activities and learning at their seat independently.
By having these resources the student will be able to gain knowledge from the content, but also practice, learn and sharpen their comprehension skills.
