Novels To Support Below Grade-Level Readers

My students need 1-3 copies of 17 different books, including works by Stephenie Meyer and Matt Christopher.

My classroom consists of high-need general education students that are performing below grade level in their reading skills.

The obstacle that my students face is the fact that they are challenged daily in school due to their difficulties in reading. This is a challenge in all of their classes as reading is imperative in most academic subjects at the middle school level. In my classroom, students need books that are written at a lower grade level yet are still of high interest. The books currently available to them are either too challenging to read or the topic is too elementary.

To better educate and engage my students, I would love to have the requested high-interest novels in my classroom library. This donation would motivate the students to read more as the topics would be engaging and the level of difficulty would be appropriate (not frustrating) to their reading levels.

With this donation, you will make it possible for my students to improve their reading levels, feel more confident in their overall academic performance, and, most importantly, enjoy reading.
