My students need leveled reading books for the Daily Five Reading Program to foster literacy independence. These include the 60 Scholastic Easy Leveled Readers set, plus the Guided Science Readers Super Set.
All students can become readers but they are not all on the same level at the same time. We need to increase our leveled library so everyone has books to read!
We are a first grade ESOL inclusion class.
Our students are from several ethnic backgrounds. Some are native English speakers and some are English Language Learners. All students contribute to each others learning and have culture to share in the melting pot of our classroom!
Our goal this year is to learn to read through the "Daily 5," which includes read to self, read to others, listen to reading, writing, and word work. We have many books on CD for listening, many writing materials, and cute word works games. In order to be successful reading to self and reading to others, we need a wide variety of reading materials for different reading levels that will interest the students and give them a lifelong love of reading!
With the way the world is headed with advances in technology, I want my children to experience classic paperback books and learn that everything does not need to be electronic to be enjoyable!
