Leveled Book Sets Needed For Book Clubs

My students need series book sets, like several "Commander Toad" and "Oliver Pig" stories, to have an effective book clubs to help them get hooked into reading!

My Students

Many of my students have not yet discovered books that capture their imaginations, and series books use unforgettable characters to hook them in.

I work in a highly diverse school with more than 75% Free and Reduced lunch.

For some of my students, entry into the school is their first exposure to English. There are 11 languages represented. Many parents speak very limited English. These students have caring parents who are involved in their education; however, the resources they can afford them, such as books, are rare at home, especially books they can read. Many of my students families rely on school to support their children's educational needs.

My Project

These books are much needed to carry out the upcoming reading unit, Series Book Clubs!! It is widely known, series get students hooked into reading and into reading a lot. We can all remember a time when we were avid series readers- the characters you grew to love as their stories unfold from one book to another. This unit will take advantage of that natural draw and support students' reading with volume, pushing them to do deeper comprehension work, particularly around characters. At the same time, these series books will help students move up to higher text levels. Students will be in groups of four to engage in collaborative discussions around texts, allowing them to tackle complex text, while supported group discussions facilitates deep comprehension work.

First and foremost, these books will support the work the students will do in Series Book Clubs unit, as well as getting them hooked.

It will increase the volume of reading they will need to do. Reading researchers have done many conclusive studies stating that volume of reading is vital to students' growing reading successes! Please help bring these books into our classroom!!
