Level Books Equals Access for Everyone

My students need leveled books in Spanish and English because I have a range of reading abilities in my classroom.

My Students

Our student population is 95% latino. Our students are immigrants or from immigrant families. Ninety-nine percent of our students receiving free lunch. Our school also has a large special education population. Our families spend a lot of their time working and aren't able to spend a lot of time with their children. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

I have an extreme wide range of reading levels in Spanish and English in my classroom. I have students that are reading in Spanish and English from kinder grade level to third grade level. Unfortunately, I don't have books at these levels in my classroom library. Having books at different levels, especially at kinder and first reading levels, is a matter of equity for my students. Reading books at their level will make my students feel successful and it will enable them to be better readers. This will also help my students to be excited about reading. My students get very excited when we get new books for our classroom library.
