Mr. Willetto from Denver CO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students books of appropriate reading level and interest for Readers Workshop.
Students are in my reading intervention class because they are behind grade level and need to practice their reading skills. But their intelligence, humor, and interests are all right on track with other middle schoolers. This means that many books at their reading level are just not very interesting to them.
These scholars need books they can get excited about reading.
We read every day and they need a variety of books to practice with. The more words and stories they can successfully read, the faster their reading level and skills will rise. Most days I hear, “Mr. you need more books.” but books cost money and to have a library for this many students is no small task. I’m asking for your help in getting books for these students.
I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade Reading Intervention. Many of my students came out of elementary school significantly behind in their reading skills. We are working together to get the skills and practice for the students to be at grade level. The problem is many books at a 2nd or 3rd-grade level aren't interesting to an 8th grader.
This selection of books added to my library will help students find books that they can get excited about.
Some of these are books that I loved and continue to love. Others are book requests straight from the students. These titles are what they want to read! They just need them in their hands, and you can help with that!
