Quality Books for Struggling Readers

My students need low level books to practice reading on their levels so they can reach their reading goals.

My Students

I teach a group of enthusiastic third graders. They are excited to see how much they can grow this school year. These students come from some of the worse possible backgrounds, but they do not let that hinder their learning.

Many students come from single family homes and more than half are English language learners.

These students are hard workers, but many enter third grade far behind academically. Through high expectations, dedicated teaching, and wonderful tools these students can excel.

My Project

Struggling readers need great books on their level to improve.

These low level books will be used to provide these readers with a greater variety of stories to hone their fledgling skills.The lack of low level books available to my students have hindered their growth.

These books will help my students unlock the world of reading.

Students will be given a chance to choose from a variety of books to read during Dyad reading time. Dyad reading is a method that pairs a low reader with a higher reader or adult so they can practice reading with support. It is a method that has shown great results specifically for struggling readers.
