My students need 3 sets of books for our classroom library, including an Amelia Bedelia set.
WOW! I love to see a student catch reading fever. That is what we are experiencing in our class. My students can't get enough books. We have read all the books in our limited classroom library. We can't always get to the library for new books. I wish they had more to choose from in our classroom.
My students are fun and energetic.
Many parents of our students attended the same school their children are in now. Our parents are supportive and involved in daily activities at the school. The students have worked hard at learning how to read this year. Our school participates in the Accelerated Reader program. Our class of 20 has taken over 1000 AR test this year and they don't want to stop. In fact, I find them reading throughout the day. Sometimes I have to ask them to put their books down and participate in my lesson! They just can't wait to finish that new adventure or see what their favorite book characters will do next.
Do you remember a favorite book from elementary school? My students have favorites. They enjoy reading about certain book characters like Clifford the Big Red Dog or Amelia Bedelia. These types of books are also included in our Accelerated Reader program. Students can read these books, enter into a program on the computer and take a comprehension test. The students love the challenge. Many of my students take these tests daily so they are reading a book a night and testing the next day. They are also encouraged to take these books home and read with parents. Not only are they improving reading skills like comprehension, they are also working on reading fluently and discovering new words to add to a growing vocabulary.
As the students read through the different levels of readers they grow in so many ways.
Their writing improves, they are excited about school and they are always striving to meet a personal reading goal. The books we are requesting for our classroom library will help us achieve our individual as well as classroom goals in reading this year. Please help me continue to teach my class to LOVE reading!
