Help me give my students a set of the Sunshine State Young Readers books for the upcoming school year in order for them to continue reading and build their reading skills.
I teach at a small neighborhood school, which just became a Title I school this year. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I want to ensure the success of every child that enters my classroom by providing my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. Throughout the year we have multiple events that allow students to showcase what they've learned in the classroom to their parents and family. This allows students to take ownership of their learning.
We are a Title I school, which means that a majority of our population lives in poverty.
Our students have a love of reading, but many do not have access to books at home. They rely on classroom libraries and our school's media center to read and with having more books in the classroom my students can become better readers.
Every year our media center challenges students in grades 3-5 to read all fifteen of the Sunshine State Young Reader books. If they read the book and get an 80% or better on the AR test, they place a sticker by their name. Students receive rewards throughout the year for reading the books. Five books = free pizza, ten books = ice cream sundae, and if they read all fifteen books, they are rewarded with free Chick-Fil-A at the end of the year. Having these books readily available in my classroom will provide my students with this opportunity.
This project will help my students learn to persevere and become stronger readers!
Some of these books are higher reading levels or have over 200 pages, but if students can look past the levels or length and pick up the books, I know they will find they can read them and not get discouraged.
