My students need a variety of highly engaging just right books to enjoy during our daily reading time. It is so important that these early learners are spending time every day enjoying books independently.
My students come with a wide variety of backgrounds many of which include limited access to materials and experiences needed to thrive in school. Within my class, I have 4 students who have dealt with parent incarceration and multiple students needing additional support to achieve learning and behavior goals.
My hope is to ignite a passion for literature and learning and to encourage curiosity and excitement.
I want my students to take ownership of their learning. By providing them with the opportunity to personally select just-right books that are of interest to them, they become much more engaged in their learning.
My students LOVE the 20 minutes they get everyday to read from their very own book box full of self selected just right books! At the kindergarten level my students go through many books in a week and I am constantly striving to keep our leveled library fresh and full of highly engaging books.
This project will fill my classroom with 60 highly engaging books at level C and D.
Many of my students are selecting books from these levels and the selection is currently lacking in variety. My students get so excited whenever new books are added to our library. With these new books I will be able to complete my leveled kindergarten library full of leveled books from A-D which will support students for many years to come!
