My Students

Basal readers are killing the reading interest in our school. I would like to get some literature books to teach theme throughout the year and get students excited about reading.

I teach 3rd-5th graders with behavior needs, speech needs, autism, and learning disabilities at a Title I school.

These students work hard everyday to make progress on their reading goals. Students have limited access to books in their homes. This is way to build confidence in their exposure to good literature books.

My Project

As a class we will read the literature book and discuss the theme, character traits, and diversity that is portrayed in them. Students will fill out graphic organizers to help them figure out the themes and character traits. As a class they will vote on which theme the book represents. The students will debate which character trait is the strongest and post their work in the classroom.

Students will be able to compare and contrast books and write an essay about what they learned.

Student work will be saved in their portfolio and then they will receive it at the end of the year.
