Fitting in While Leveling Up

My students need books that help them fit in while leveling up

My Students

We call ourselves "Team 5" and it is truly what we are. In Team 5, teachers share all students in the grade. One student may have me as a teacher during math, while that same student may have a different teacher for next unit.

Our students thrive because their individual needs are being met.

Every day, things are changing in order to meet the educational needs of each student.

We encourage a growth mindset and believe that all of our students have such a high potential. One of our biggest goals is that every student will fall in love with reading more than ever this year!

My Project

We have many students that can feel embarrassed about our reading block because the books that are appropriate for their reading level appeal to a much younger audience.

Our classroom library needs books that are lower-level content, but upper-level appearance.

Our students have tested and approved books from this publisher and would be thrilled to add to our collection.

We have found high-interest books with covers that will make our students feel like they fit in, while leveling up their reading skills at an appropriate pace. We are hoping to add books to our collection that our students feel proud to be holding, but will not have them wanting to give up after reading the first page.
