Graphic Novels for Growing Readers

My Students

Students in our Reading Intervention and English Language Development classroom come from a variety of different economic backgrounds, and may not have the prior knowledge and home support to be ready for grade level reading.

"I can read it myself!" is one of the most rewarding statements that a teacher can hear.

Witnessing the joy of a child reading independently is thrilling as a teacher. But many of our learners need extra reinforcement and practice to form the solid building blocks that will enable them to become successful independent readers.

My Project

Students in our Reading Intervention classroom are strengthening their developing literacy skills and learning to enjoy reading. Many have been struggling with learning to read and comprehend what they are reading. These graphic novels will be added to our classroom library, so that students can borrow them to read in class and at home.

Children who enjoy books will become lifelong readers!

Graphic novels introduce students to imaginative worlds that they may not have been able to access due to their difficulties with reading. We want all of our students to feel successful and entertained while practicing needed literacy skills.
