My third graders are an enthusiastic group of learners. Returning from on-line learning, these students are eager to hold a book in their hand, work on hands on projects and create works of art that can be appreciated by their peers. Their eagerness to learn, create and work hard is amazing and I just am in awe of their appreciation for all things related to the school experience.
When students have a variety of texts available to them they exemplify a more interested reading experience. For students who are struggling to read and who are working on early comprehension skills, they require texts that are of a high interest to them. I've noticed that students will persevere through the reading and put more effort in when they have a choice in the books and are interested in them.
Having high interest books available for struggling students becomes an essential part of their success in reading comprehension.
I've noticed that students will go back to these books and re-read them which ultimately helps them increase their fluency and accuracy rate. It's amazing to watch a child pick up a book and feel confident that they are understanding what is written and that they can now finish the book faster with more understanding. It's important to have these books available in the classroom as opposed to checking them out of a library for a short period of time. Help me achieve this success with your generous donation.
