My students need 7 copies each of 5 chapter books at their reading level.
Have you ever tried to read a book that was boring? Too hard? Some of my students face this struggle everyday. They need to have an interesting chapter book in their hands to expand their desire to read independently.
I teach at a primarily low-economic school with students that need to be motivated to learn.
Our school is a math, science and technology magnet school and most of our funding is put towards those curricular areas. I am also the grade level inclusion teacher.
I am requesting a series of books titled "Weird School" for my students to investigate. The series contain entertaining titles such as "Miss Mary is Scary" that will get them intrigued about opening the book - step one! The novels are smaller chapter books, which will keep them engaged without overloading and seeming tedious.
Reading is such an important subject.
As a lover of reading, I try my best to inspire my students by getting them hooked on authors and series that will inspire them to continue reading. Sometimes, it only takes one book to make a difference. Maybe this series will be it for some child.
