Growing Readers Need New Book Sets

My students need sets of new books, like Pirate Mom, Amazing Sharks!, and The Stinky Giant, to further challenge them during small group guided reading.

My Students

Despite some of the hardships my students have faced, my class shows up ready to learn every day. 75% of my students qualify for free or reduced price lunch, and nearly 70% are English Language Learners.

Our students work all year long on expanding their problem solving skills through creative thinking and trial and error.

We focus on STEAM education, combining Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math on a regular basis. My students are so much more engaged in their learning when we can connect the topics to hands-on projects.

My Project

My students say their favorite time of the day is when we meet in leveled guided reading groups. My students have made so much progress this year, but I'm lacking sufficient titles for students in the lower groups. We meet almost daily, and spend 1-2 days on each book. But that means we are reading about 10-15 books a month. These new reading sets will help my students develop both word attack skills and comprehension strategies. In addition, they will help my students foster a love of reading that will last a lifetime. These books will truly make a difference!
