My students need to read engaging and relevant texts that are on their current reading level.
My students from Columbus, OH are in fifth grade and primarily come from low income backgrounds. They are currently reading grade levels behind, but are still set to persevere and get on grade level before the end of their fifth grade year.
My students LOVE books but sometimes find that reading texts on their current grade level can be extremely challenging and frustrating.
They want to read engaging, culturally relevant and appropriate books for their own personalities and interests.
They helped me create a list of books they would like to see in our library. Every hand was raised when I asked students what books they wanted to see in our classroom.
By contributing to my classroom library, you are promoting the power of reading to my students. You are helping them defeat all odds and read on their current grade level by the end of the year. You are supporting a love of reading in ALL students.
My students understand the power of a book and love to carry their books around.
They get so excited when they get new books, especially that they can read. Graphic novels have been successful with my students. Last year, they couldn't put down the Lighting Thief and I would love to get the sequels!
