I serve special education students who spend all of their day in a general education classroom. Many of them are struggling readers but they want to have the appearance of reading what everyone else is reading. They want to blend into the class. I would like to give them the opportunity to fit in with their peers by giving them books they can read on their own but look like everyone else’s book. Please help me build live long readers.
Help me help struggling readers!
These books will give struggling readers confidence to read books in class that look like what their peers are reading.
Hi-Lo books allow readers that read lower level than their peers to be successful in independent reading time and topics that older readers enjoy. They have a similar look but more advanced reading materials. They also have content that interest older students but are written on a level that allows for independent reading.
I want to encourage reading in the classroom and help build the students confidence. Many of the students I work with know they cannot read the way their peers do. They desperately want to fit in and be independent at the same time.
