Rockin' Readers Book Club!

My students need 6 copies of 10 different nonfiction books in order for me to do a book club right after school.

My school is in a low income inner city school in Nevada. My students are 85% ELL which means that English is their second language. Most of my students live with a single parent who works at least two jobs. This makes it hard for parents to be involved in their child's education.

I am hoping to start a book club after school for an hour two days a week. It would give a chance for 6 students to work on reading skill they are weak in. The lack of involvement with parents makes it hard for students to excel in reading. This program would allow my students to get instruction in small groups with non-fiction skills that they are lacking.

For this program I would need 10 book sets. One for each week of the program. There will be 6 books in each book set. Each week we would pick a book to discuss and I would let my students keep the books at the end of the week to add to their libraries at home to use for their reading homework. I would also open this program up to the parents. I would love to see the parents coming in and learning techniques to help their child learn to read.

You will make it possible for my students to gain self esteem towards learning to read. You will also help parents communicate and teach their children how to read along with building an at home library for my students.
