I am a first grade teacher in a science magnet school. The school is located in a high-need community. For many of our children, English is a second language. This year, my major focus is reading.

In order to improve our test scores in reading, we are teaching our children to interpret, analyze, evaluate and connect with books. Every day I read a story to the class. While I read, I always focus on one of the above skills. My major problem is not having enough books that are appropriate to teach the necessary skills.

The Magic Tree House Series was introduced to me by another first grade teacher. My class loves listening to these chapter books. These books contain everything necessary to facilitate teaching the above mentioned skills. The Curious George, Franklin, Poppleton, Mr Putter and Tabby, and Henry and Mudge Books are also great favorites, and provide excellent opportunities to teach these necessary reading skills. Many of my students are now able to read these wonderful books by themselves.

"Exploring Adventures Unknown" is made possible for young children by listening to, and reading exciting books. Your help would insure the continued reading success of my children.
