My 25 students each need a copy of the novel "No Flying in the House" for a whole class literature study to help build their reading comprehension skills.
Finding a novel that my entire class can enjoy together and be used for whole class reading comprehension instruction is a real challenge this year. My students read at different levels, have diverse interests, and many have already read all the whole class sets of books I have on my shelves!
My third grade students attend a public charter school in California.
They are a motivated group of readers with diverse reading skills and experiences. Having a class composed of many English Language Learners and students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds has made it a challenge to find "that perfect novel" to use for whole class instruction. All of my students love to read, but I want to provide a whole class reading experience that all students can enjoy together, while at the same time, engage and instruct each of them. A shared experience, which this novel will provide, will allow me to use the content of the story across the curriculum for lessons in other subject areas like writing, art, social studies, and science.
My students each need a copy of No Flying in the House. Having a class set of 25 copies of the novel No Flying in the House will provide me with the opportunity to "teach and reach" all my students at one time with a novel that none of my students have read and all will be able to comprehend. Often, I have to spread myself thin during reading instruction, having to teach different leveled groups of readers on different days. With a whole class novel, I can read with the entire class everyday. The novel will also provide my students with a shared reading experience that they can enjoy and learn from together. I look forward to facilitating and listening to the rich discussions my students will have and the modeling of reading strategies that my more experienced readers will be able to share with readers with fewer skills and experience.
There is nothing like having a shared reading experience in the classroom.
Often teachers achieve this through a teacher read aloud. This is a wonderful way to share a story. If I have a class set of the novel No Flying in the House, each of my students will be a part of the reading experience. They will have a chance to read, listen, and share their thoughts, ideas, and feelings as they predict, question, and make inferences about the intriguing plot and interesting characters in this story.
