My students need engaging books for Reader's Workshop! I need both books to model with, as well as sets of books to teach with. Books like The Indian in the Cupboard would be perfect for us!
"I wish we had school on Saturdays!" That's when you know you've had a successful week as a teacher! Our school is a wonderful low income primary school located in central Illinois. It's home to just over 200 amazing students. Our free or reduced lunch population is near 75 percent. Even with their economical challenges, our students come to school each day eager to learn and ready for more! We teach them never to settle for less than their personal best and it surely shows!
These books are just the right level for my students. In my classroom we do Reader's Workshop, which means there is a variety of activity going on all at once. First we begin with a mini lesson where I teach and model the skill we are working on. Students often get a chance to try the work in partnerships at this time, too. Then it's off to independent tasks and reading alongside guided reading groups with the teacher.
My spring inventory told me I am missing certain levels and genres of books for both modeling and guided reading groups.
The books I've selected will be engaging ways to address the Illinois Learning Standards I am responsible for teaching my third graders. One such example is the Cinderella Stories Around the World: 4 Beloved Tales (Multicultural Fairy Tales). It will address both fairy tales and comparing and contrasting stories and characters. I have chosen books of certain levels so that I can reach each of my readers. I like to compare reading levels to prescriptions. It's precisely what can be used to help you improve! Books that are too easy or too difficult won't help much. Books must be just right to move you forward and help you to make progress!
