My students need 60 copies of The Indian in the Cupboard to share while we read this engaging story together as a grade level.
Third grade is a pivotal year in literacy. Up until third grade, students are learning to read. In third grade and beyond, students are reading to learn. Our students are enjoying listening to us read aloud, but they are missing out on so much by not having a copy of their own to follow along with.
Our students are a wonderful bunch of eight and nine year olds.
In sunny California, these kiddos attend a k-6 elementary school. They are kind, thoughtful and they work really hard. This particular group of third graders started the year facing a giant - almost half of them are not reading at grade level proficiency.
We are requesting a grade level set of the book, The Indian In The Cupboard. We are currently in chapter 6 and are reading the book aloud to the students. While the kids are enjoying listening to fluent reading, they are missing out on being able to identify unknown vocabulary, figurative language, seeing how different dialects are written and so, so much more. Students will be better equipped to comprehend the text, ask thoughtful questions, make inferences, and use context clues to figure out unknown words while they have the text in front of them. With 60 copies, our four third grade classes will each receive 15 copies. With 15 copies in each classroom, our students will be able to partner up and follow along while we read. The students will be able to use sticky notes to mark where they have confusion, where they want to ask a question, and/or to write predictions about what will happen next. These factors are just a few of what makes students better readers.
As stated earlier, this particular group of third graders are facing a challenge of being behind in reading.
Reading is hard for them. If reading continues to be a burden, they will get burned out and lose interest. Once that happens, their academic future becomes a slippery slope. Everything from math to science to social studies becomes challenging. The students are LOVING this book so far, and we want to do everything we can to foster that love of reading.
