Mrs. Nicks from Fort Pierce FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

High Interest Books for Highly Interested Readers

My students need books that are interesting, while also being attainable at their reading levels. I included class sets of books of classics that could be a whole-class reading experience.

My Students

I have yet to meet my future world changers. My students will be middle school students with different needs. My students will likely face many challenges outside of school, but I want them to feel comfortable in my classroom and know they are safe.

My classroom will be full of students who are going to change the world.

They may not know that yet, but my goal is that each of us knows by the end of the first WEEK of school that they are capable of making a difference, and they deserve to have that chance.

My Project

I have been building my classroom library since I was in middle school myself, but most of the books I have collected are picture books. While my students (and adults alike) can still benefit greatly from picture books, it is very important to have books that match the maturity level of the students.

If you are a middle school struggling reader, only having access to books that are marketed towards little kids and even babies, you are not very likely to enjoy reading.

Having books that are "high interest" books that are written for lower levels of reading levels can boost the chances that students enjoy reading again. If they can relearn to enjoy reading, they will be more likely to be more willing to work on reading, which will only lead to bigger reading gains.

I picked a wide variety of books that students can both access in my classroom library, but also that we can use in small group reading and whole group reading as well to hit the many standards we need to learn throughout the year. Having these books added to my library would be a very great, and very needed addition to my classroom!
