Reading Is An Adventure

My students need independent and instructional leveled fiction and non-fiction books to do guided reading.

My Students

Many of my students are from low income families, and most have been displaced from their homes due to Hurricane Harvey. Even with all the negativity in their lives, they are happy, energetic, and have a great desire to come to school and learn every day. We are currently at a junior high with books that are not on their reading level that they can only look at pictures and use imagination to read. They would love nothing more than to have leveled books they can read at their independent and instructional levels to make reading enjoyable.

My Project

First grade is the year where students learn to read and learn information that they will use for the rest of their lives. This is also the year they develop their attitude toward reading and school in general.

In order for me to help them develop a love of reading and learning, I am needed leveled readers so that they are being taught at their independent and instructional levels.

With these leveled readers they will learn to read at a pace that makes reading fun without causing frustration in guided reading groups. I would love to see each child develop a love of reading.
