High Interest Chapter Books

My students need high interest fiction books to replace some of what we lost in Hurricane Harvey.

My Students

We are a Title 1 school. Many of our students do not come from homes where they have the opportunity to read and be read to at home, so it is essential that we help them develop a love for reading while at school. We also have a large range of students who learn better kinesthetically--or by doing, rather than hearing or seeing. They are eager to learn and cannot wait to be back in our library checking out books and doing hands on activities. We know that every child has the potential to be successful if they are given the opportunity and taught the joy of reading.

My Project

We were more fortunate than most in the sense that when Hurricane Harvey hit, we didn't lose quite as many books as other schools. However we did lose quite a few fiction books, and our library was severely affected by mold due to lack of power after flooding in the storm. The affected books have been weeded and currently all the other books in our library are in boxes while we await the demolition and reconstruction of the inside of our library--from drywall and shelves to carpeting and flooring.

Our students miss being able to check out books and although we do have a few they can read during our library time (currently being held in a vacant classroom), I would love to be ready with exciting new books for them as soon as we are allowed back into our library.

With your help, these high-interest books will get them excited to read again--which is a feat we have struggled to achieve and we don't want to lose any ground! We all know that good readers have good futures and these books will help make that task more enjoyable for our students at Crain Elementary.
