TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students the gift of reading skills, such as inferring, through the use of great Van Allsburg books such as The Stranger, The Sweetest Fig, and Probuditi!
I have a diverse class of students. Many are from low socioeconomic households, and several have learning disabilities. They have fantastic personalities and get so excited when they learn new things and "get it." Many have trouble with reading comprehension and need all the support they can get to get them interested in literacy. They get very vested in stories and get so upset when I try to stop the story in the middle before getting to the end. I know they will love the Van Allsburg books!
Have you ever read a book that kept you guessing the entire time? That's the way Chris Van Allsburg's books are. Through his beautiful illustrations, interesting stories, and endings with twists, Van Allsburg keeps kids guessing and looking for clues the entire time.
One of the main reasons I want a Chris Van Allsburg library for my class is that his books help strengthen my students' reading skills, particularly in the area of inferring.
For example, his book The Stranger keeps students guessing as to the stranger's identity the entire book. They have to amass clues throughout the book from both the text and illustrations to finally come to the conclusion at the end of the book that the stranger is Jack Frost.
Thank you for your interest in helping support my students in strengthening their reading skills!
