Excited Readers Need Literature Books for Group Reading

My students need colorful chapter books to use during small group reading instruction that will keep them interested in reading!!!

My Students

Do you like to read books that have color and pictures to them? Our student do, too!! We are currently reading computer printed books with minimal pictures that are in black and white for small group reading instruction.

We are a small, rural low income school in Kansas.

This is part of our MTSS program. We are over 75% free and reduced lunches for our K-5 building. Our students have many challenges that they need to overcome before they are ready to learn. We would like to provide them with the curriculum materials needed, so they continue to be excited about learning and reading. We have 65 3rd-5th graders that we split into small group reading for 40 minutes a day. This is part of our MTSS program.

My Project

Due to recent budget cuts, we are limited on engaging curriculum materials for small group reading instruction. We use a reading program that prints off their books for small group reading, so we can have multiple copies. The problem is that we need multiple copies of literature sets, so that we can provide exposure to well-written chapter books in a small group setting at their instructional reading level. Students will learn about authors of different literature books and be interested in reading other books from the same author.

Students in our building love to read, however they are not excited when we show them their computer printed book for reading groups.

They want colorful, engaging books that get them excited about reading. We need to provide them with well-known chapter books that have a good meaning and are enjoyable to read. Please help us provide this for our kids. We need help purchasing multiple copies of trade books, so we can do our part to come up with engaging activities for the literature sets.
