Finding the Right Book for Every Student!

My Students

My classroom is made up of 20 amazing learners. They come to class ready to learn despite the obstacles they face prior to stepping foot in the classroom. We are a Title I school and almost all of my students are English Language Learners. My students love coming to school because I make learning fun. My students work hard each and every day. Unfortunately, they need supplies that I can’t provide on my own. This includes “just right” books for our classroom library.

My Project

My classroom library has a wide variety of genre-sorted texts. However, it lacks leveled readers. Leveled readers are "just right" books. My students will read these books during our independent/buddy reading time.

These stories will allow them to build their confidence and practice skills taught in guided reading.

They will also be used to improve comprehension and fluency.

I love that the materials I have selected contain both fiction and nonfiction texts.

These books will also be sent home for students to read for homework. Each student has a special folder that they use to hold books from our classroom library. Students can read to their families or parents can read to their child. While they are reading, the parents can stop and ask them questions about the story. This is what homework looks like for our youngest readers.

Reading aloud to children is extremely important. Stories help to improve vocabulary and most importantly they foster a love for reading! These books will also provide extra special time for families to bond with their child.

By funding this project, you will be helping a fantastic group of students to learn how to read. I know that they will keep my students engaged and excited to read at school each and every day!
