"I work at a school located in New York. I am an academic intervention reading teacher. I teach 3rd and 5th grade students. My students are having difficulty reading. I would like a leveled library so my students can borrow books to take home and read. This leveled library would help foster my students to read at home. Many of my students do not have books to read outside of school. The leveled library would allow my students to choose a "just right" book. I have found it to be very helpful pairing my students with a "just right" book. This is a book that is matched to the student's reading level. It is a book that is not too hard or too easy for the student to read. The student would be able to read independently. Many of my students do not get the opportunity to visit the library. Many do not have books at home to read. Others have books but the books are not matched to their reading level. Often the books are too difficult and the students get frustrated and give up reading. The leveled library will foster a positive reading experience because the book is matched to the students' reading level. This will promote the joy of reading. In addition to reading the book, each student will keep a reading journal and write a response.
