Read What You Like, Like What You Read!

My students need age appropriate novels to motivate them to read more and improve reading comprehension.

My Students

Do you remember finding that one book or author that sparked your interest in books? I hope to light that spark for my students by exposing them to a variety of age appropriate novels.

I teach all types of readers, from the reluctant to the avid.

With today's technology becoming so prominent in the lives of teenagers, reading a book isn't always their idea of "fun". I hope to make them want to reach for a good book instead of their hand held electronic devices.

My Project

I am requesting books like the Sammy Keyes series to add to my classroom library. My students will be able to choose a novel for independent reading from my classroom library. We will also read the same novel as a group and delve deeper into the text by identifying literary elements.

I hope to motivate all my students to read more often.

When given the right books to choose from, I believe that all children will find one book that will make them want to read more.
