It's a Third Grade Book Frenzy

My students need 50 middle grade and upper grade chapter books such as "How to Train Your Dragon" and "No Flying in the House" to support their intense passion for reading and talking about books!

My Students

Can you imagine what it must be like to have students who will not stop reading? What a wonderful problem to have! But what happens when they've already read most of the books in their classroom library?

My students are in third grade.

This is our second year together, as I moved up to third grade with them from second grade. Our school is basically made up of students in the middle class/lower middle class socioeconomic levels. They absolutely love to read.

My Project

We are a class of avid readers. Students in our class love to read! Into our second year together, many students have already read most of the books in our third grade classroom library. This is a wonderful problem to have! Adding more middle grade and upper grade chapter books would support both our reluctant readers and our readers who are reading far beyond their grade level. Research shows that independent, choice reading has a tremendous impact on a child's reading ability. Having more chapter books in our classroom library would give students more choices, encouraging their desire to read for pleasure!

I want my students to love reading far beyond the walls of our classroom.

I want them to find books and series of books that they will be reading after walking out of our school. Giving students a wider variety of books will help encourage a love for independent reading that will follow them into adulthood!
