There's something magical in a whole class novel read. It brings us all together, something we can bond over. In an ever-changing generation full of instant gratification nothing brings us closer than a good book we can all obsess over. Teaching them the art of diving deeper into an author's purpose has my students in awe.
"Remember there are no mistakes, only lessons!" is the motto in our room.
We are a diverse group and I want nothing more than for each of my students to not only feel they have a particular purpose and place on this campus, but that they have a specific place in this world. We all have a different story and I want them to embrace it!
These books will continue to enhance the language-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom is a place that my students really enjoy-we read aloud together and independently. Whole class novel studies create magic in the classroom and my students are thankful for the opportunities to read. These two class sets have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading.
The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.
My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word while building community in our class.
