My 4th, 5th and 6th grade students are excited to come to the library each week to read, discover new books and learn.
Our school has had a massive population boom this fall.
We've grown to more than 500 students, many of whom are living at or below poverty level. Our classrooms are full of students from a variety of backgrounds, but we all come together as one big family at school.
Many of my 4th, 5th and 6th grade students are reading at levels that are far below their interest levels. This project would help to expand the library's collection of high-interest/low-readability books by greatly expanding our collection of graphic novels.
Graphic novels are a popular choice for all students, but are also a valuable tool for older students that are reading at low reading-levels.
Their benefits include: increasing vocabulary and reading comprehension by presenting more complex material in a readable text, exposing students to art, giving visual learners graphic clues to reading context and having a great influence on encouraging reluctant readers to read.
This high-interest/low-readability (Hi-Lo) Graphic Novel Project will give struggling readers an opportunity to strengthen their reading skills by providing books that match their interests with their reading levels.
