My students need 2 sets of AKJ Reading Recovery leveled readers for our classroom leveled library.
My students love the power of choosing a book from our classroom leveled library and being able to read it. I teach kindergarten and first grade at an urban elementary school. 90% of the students are low-income. 90% of the students are English language learners.
My students cherish books and love to read.
3 to 5 times a week, I meet with them in small groups to teach them reading strategies with books that are at their individual reading levels. They will keep this book in their personal book-box to practice for a couple of weeks. After the lesson, they get to choose several books from the classroom leveled library to add to their book-box. They use these books to practice the skills that they have been learning. My students read from their boxes for 20 to 30 minutes everyday. To be successful, students need access to many high-quality leveled books to choose from. I need to make sure that each level has enough books so that students are always encountering new texts. This will both help them become better readers and encourage a love of reading a new book. It is incredibly important that students enjoy reading in kindergarten and first grade.
My request will add valuable new books to my classroom leveled library. These books will be the main resource that my students use to learn to read. Students will read them by themselves during independent reading time and will share their favorite parts with a friend during partner reading time. These resources will last years, as my students are well trained to cherish and take care of their books.
Your help will ensure that my students will start school with the pleasure and power of reading.
With your contribution, my students will have the daily experience of "I can do it...I can read!"
