On the Reading Railroad from Lima to Quebec (Part 2)
Help me give my students engaging leveled readers such as Cam Jansen, Nate the Great, and a variety of nonfiction texts to take home each night to extend their reading beyond the school day.

The students I serve in my reading intervention classes are some of the hardest working children I know. Each day they come into my reading class ready to learn despite some of the challenges they face at home. Most of the students I serve live in poverty and/or come from non English speaking homes. Aside from when students are in school, they have very limited access to books.
Easy access to interesting books has been proven effective in closing the rich-poor reading achievement gap.
"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him." - Maya Angelou
My students need engaging leveled readers to take home each night to extend their reading beyond the school day. Students in my 3rd grade intervention groups will read a picture book or a chapter from a book each night.
After reading, students will prepare a quick response journal for our weekly Fun Friday Book Club event.
These students are reading below grade level (L) and need engaging books to help motivate them to work towards their goal of reading on grade level (Q). Our Fun Friday Book Club event will be designed to expand their learning/thinking with fun activities about the topic/themes they are reading.
