Confidant Teachers Create Confidant Readers

I need this fabulous resource, The Reading Minilessons Book Grade 3, to help me with my reading plans. It is a fabulous resource to use along with my Reading Strategies Book.

My Students

I teach in a Title One school in SC. One hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and free lunch. We are high poverty and unfortunately, many of our students face struggles that we may never face. My students are fabulous! I have my challenging few, but overall, we are making gains! Every year is unique and this year my students are math rock stars! Our weakness is reading and we spend quite a bit of the day reading and practicing skills to be better readers! We have five reading groups and daily, I try to meet with as many students as I can! With the new Read to Succeed Law, my students face the challenge of being fluent readers by the end of third grade! Help us soar to success!

My Project

We are currently a focus school in South Carolina. The district has moved in to help us improve student growth for our state testing. I am not so much concerned about state testing as I am with the deficit our school faces in reading. The Reading Minilesson Book focuses on lessons that correlate with the third grade reading standards. Our district has one of these books, but I don't have access to it often. I would love to get my hands on a copy because the more confidant I am in teaching reading the growth in my students will come naturally. This book follows our district model for Reading Workshop and I would love to be able to use this resource while planning.

I truly believe if we can create more confidant teachers then teacher retention will rise and student growth will as well.

Please help me in crafting my instructional practices. I am always looking for ways to grow and this book truly is a fabulous resource.
