Reading Warriors Ready to Travel the World Through Reading

My students need to learn that reading is fun, and can increase comprehension and fluency by reading at least 30 minutes a day.

My Students

My students are part of an inclusive classroom. One of the basic foundations for all core subjects is reading comprehension. Reading comprehension ties in with English language arts, math, science, and social studies.

My group of students that I teach are below grade level when it comes to reading comprehension and fluency.

At our school, we have a library, but some students are not able to get the books they need to read, as the books have been checked out (We have a large population of students). Some of them also can't get to the library in the neighborhood because it is not in walking distance, so the students need reading resources in the classroom.

My Project

The materials picked for this project will give my reading warriors a chance to experience fiction and non-fiction books, that will not only help them increase comprehension and fluency but expand their minds to different cultures and writing styles. Some books are chapter books that will help them build stamina to read books in one session or learn to read as much as possible and then go back later to finish the book.

My reading warriors want to be challenged and these books will give them a challenge.

My warriors have all the motivation in the world to want to read and enjoy what they read. I just hope we are able to help these children receive the knowledge they will gain from reading.
