Everyone Can Read!

My students need sets of both level A and B books in order to be able to read independently.

My Students

How would you like all students in a classroom to be able to read books regardless of their academic abilities? This is possible with leveled readers. I would love to create a classroom library with a leveled book collection that students can enjoy by being able to read books based on their ability.

I have 30 amazing, diverse Kindergartners with a shared love for books!

Many of my students have varying reading ability levels. Students reading abilities range from kindergarten to third grade. All students would benefit greatly from leveled readers, because all students will have the opportunity of reading books at their level.

My Project

To meet the needs of every student, a classroom library needs to represent a wide range of children with a wide range of reading abilities. Adding leveled reading books (level A and B) to our classroom library will support literacy skills for all students. The use of this amazing resource will expose students to a variety of story structures (genres) that they can read. Students will also build their sight word vocabulary and fluency. They will also be provided with access to higher text levels. Leveled books allow students to read and comprehend various types of texts, exposing them to information and vocabulary they can understand, allowing students to gain background knowledge that will help them move on to higher level texts. It also promotes success in all students, particularly those on the lower spectrum.

Students can build their fluency and comprehension skills when they read books that are on their target level, allowing them to concentrate on comprehension instead of struggling to decode unknown words.

Giving students the opportunity to select books in their classroom library that is at their individual reading ability is crucial in their primary grades. Exposing children to books that they can read independently is imperative in the development of early literacy skills in all students.
