Our school is in an urban area in central Virginia. We are very proud with the amount of diversity represented with our elementary school. Our students and teachers love books and make reading a special part of each day. Along with motivating our students to read books they enjoy, our teachers are always working to increase our students' academic achievements and social-emotional skills. We work very hard to build a trusting and loving relationship between our students and teachers. We are proud of our school community!
My students love to be able to read. Independent reading is sacred time within the classroom. Even with all of the love and encouragement that we have with books in our classroom, I still face having many reluctant readers.
What my class needs are high interest series books to help encourage voracious reading.
Many of the series selected have captivated readers for years. The problem students face is that they are always checked out from the school library. I am looking for a way to help these students access these books without having to wait forever for them to be returned to the school library.
