In my fourth and fifth grade, blended, Title One class, I have twenty-eight, wonderful kiddos. This group is a diverse group of nine to eleven-year-old students that are curious and eager to learn. These students are all wonderful and amazing and I want them to have access to new books that we can read together in our intervention reading groups.
I hope to give my students access to new, engaging, exciting chapter books that they can read and enjoy in a small reading intervention group.
Currently in the classroom, I have older, dated books and chapter books for my students. My students deserve to know there are wonderful books they can read and relate to out there!
It is becoming harder and harder to get students engaged in reading. This is even harder when all of the books they have access to are old and outdated. I am hoping to provide a few of my reading groups with new texts that they have not read, books that are more relateable to them and their own experiences. My students have been re-reading books each year because our materials have not been updated. These books I have selected are newer, with stories that my students can understand and relate to. I want them to know that books can be a window and a mirror that allows them to see into the lives of others and also a reflection of themselves in the texts.
