Just Right Books = Joyful Readers

My students need more leveled books to pick from during their independent reading time.

My Students

A good reader chooses to read and chooses what he/she reads. Becoming a good reader requires, among other things, having access to books that are both interesting and that offer the right level of support and challenge.

My classroom is made up of a diverse group of great students who reflect San Francisco's multiculturalism.

My students come from all socio-economic backgrounds with some who have access to many books at home and some who have access to none. We are part of a small school that provides a small-town family feel but which doesn't have an extensive collection of diverse books for new readers.

My Project

A small library of leveled reading books which will give each student the chance to run his fingers over a selection of book bindings before choosing just the right book (at just the right level) and settling down for a good read. By having a variety of books at different reading levels, each child will know that she can read a book on her own and she will be well on her way to developing the confidence of a good reader.

Imagine a classroom with every single student reading.

That is what having just right leveled books are helping to make happen. Students are no longer saying "too hard" but reading and being brave as they tackle a few tricky words.
