My Students

Our school is in a rural area of North Texas. We are a Title I school. Many of my students do not read outside of the classroom. My students are in need of some great classroom novels to inspire a love of reading!

My students sometimes have to take the road less traveled to develop their love of reading.

Please help them in their journey. Reading novels helps students practice reading and develop their interpersonal skills by reflecting and discussing the themes and characters.

My Project

These materials will support my Novel project. Our goal is to read a new novel in each 6 week grading period. We are halfway to our goal. Audiobooks are a great tool to help my struggling readers to enjoy grade-level texts.

We listen to the novel and read along.

This allows students to focus on the story. They are not worried about being called on to read aloud. Students also benefit from hearing a professional actor reading the text with inflection and feeling.

The post its and markers will encourage collaboration and sharing of strategies that help the novels come alive for my students. They will participate in group and individual activities to strengthen their reading skills.
