Ms. Leete from Milwaukee WI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students high interest choices and series to read to help them complete their classroom reading requirements, such as through series which also improve English Language Skills.
We work with special education students at an urban school in Milwaukee. The students have a variety of needs including varying reading levels and interests. Many of the students come from low income families, which can prevent students from having easy access to books. It is important for students to be able to read books with characters they resonate with or that they want to read, rather than having limited choice.
All students should be able to read a book on their reading level, without having to worry about whether or not the content is too boring or irrelevant to them.
Many of the students we work with are also English Language Learners, and studies show that reading series books can improve English language skills. Improving these skills will help them across all academic areas.
Each year students are expected to read a variety of books of different genres. There is a need for high interest books at the students' reading levels to help motivate them and help them enjoy completing this task. We are working as a special education team to build our library to include high interest books from a variety of genres. The books would provide students with materials that are interesting to them, while also being at a level that they can feel successful reading.
Having age appropriate content at each student's reading level allows them to be engaged and strive to complete their yearly reading goal.
Our aspiration is for students to achieve their reading goals, and find a love for independent reading.
