My Students

In my fourth grade co-teaching reading class, we strive to find ways to get students excited to read and enjoy watching their love for reading grow over the school year.

A big part of getting students excited to read is finding books that appeal to their interest and truly engage them.

Fourth grade is the year that students are transitioning from picture books to chapter books. However, in a co-teaching classroom some students take longer to transition and need additional support to find a love of reading.

My Project

These books are nominated for the Show Me Readers Award for this year, 2018-19. Each year there are 10 books nominated by the Missouri Association of School Librarians to be read by school age children and voted on. These votes will help determine which book nominee will receive this award for the state of Missouri.

My students love to be a part of such a decision, this finds them motivated to read a variety of books that passively assists in determining which books truly interests them.

These nominated books will also contribute points to goal setting done through AR after reading. Our students work toward an individualized point/comprehension goal each quarter.
