I teach in a school that has three 4th grade classrooms. We use a flex group model for teaching reading and math. Students move from group to group depending upon their individual needs in each skill area. These groups are very fluid and students may move to a different group at any point in time. As a team, we use a plethora of materials in our differentiation in order to make sure every student's learning needs are met!
Students in my flex reading group are always eager to explore and learn new things from books.
I use a variety of non-fiction and fiction books to reach all reading interests and levels. Once a student discovers a genre, author, series, etc. that they find interesting, they check out every possible book they can find on my shelf that fits into that interest.
It is an honor to travel through the 4th grade learning journey each year with a new group of outstading students!
My students that struggle with reading will be able to enjoy books that are at a 4th grade interest level without worrying about the book being too difficult to read!
Reading will be enjoyable for everyone!
Students will have different books available to choose from that will be at their individual reading level as well as their interest level. By being able to make choices, the students will enjoy the books more. This will also give them the opportunity to bring back the love of learning into our 4th grade classroom which I hope will continue on into their futures!
