Moving on Up with Books

My students need multiple copies of various levels of literature to become independent readers as their teachers share through modeling and guided reading.

My Students

It isn't that children don't like to read, but often just they don't know which books they do like. Having multiple copies of books of various levels and genres allow them to experience a wide variety of literature in groups where they can discover a love of reading.

My students are amazing Pre-K through 6th graders.

We have approximately 567 students where 52% of them are eligible for free and reduced lunch. Approximately 40% of our students are non-Caucasian. They love to visit the library for lessons and story times.

My Project

Often a child is reluctant to tackle a higher reading level or a longer book by themselves. Sometimes it is an overwhelming task. Each of the titles are chosen to pull readers into the book and captivate their imaginations. The students' confidence in themselves will be raised and they will more willingly tackle another book on their own.

These titles will allow us to read in small groups and whole class providing amazing motivational discussions and activities.

They each lead to other books by the same authors or in the same genre. These books will allow teachers to work intensely with students at risk and who are behind in school. Children who love to read do better in school and are usually more creative problem solvers.
