Help me give my students engaging novels, such as the Wonder series and Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing, to support small group novel studies in the classroom!
My students are very excited about reading! While they are excited about the joys of reading for understanding, I want to keep the momentum going. I want to try something different during our small group reading time. Something that will allow my small class of students an opportunity to engage in a good book and discuss the content among each other. However, in trying something new, I realize I could use a bit of help!
I have come up with an idea that will satisfy all readers, despite their reading levels!
From the beginning reader to the established reader, I would like to begin the process of conducting novel studies. This will allow my students an opportunity to delve into a book and pull out the information in the form of small group discussions. Through this process, my students who are also learning how to read will find value in choosing a book versus a worksheet.
I have always believed that my students are just as capable as their general education peers. Lately, I have noticed that many teachers are using novel studies in the classroom to promote a high interest in reading for readers of different levels. This is a process that I would love to try in my classroom!
I am excited about the opportunity for each student to be able to engage in a good book.
We're ready to say goodbye to worksheets with one page stories and a handful of questions to determine comprehension. This time around, I am looking for student led conversations regarding literature. The Wonder series books are for my higher leveled readers. While students are working on strategies to improve their overall reading comprehension, they will be able to follow the courageous story of a little boy with a facial deformity in elementary school. For my students who are beginning the path to reading, I've chosen the Here's Hank series written by Henry Winkler. The book follows Hank, a 2nd grader, who loves school and projects, but doesn't like writing the reports or doing the "school" work.
I have also added books that will assist students with social emotional learning. The Word Collector is a very popular book that follows the journey of a little boy with an interest in collecting words. It will teach my students about being themselves, no matter their interests. There is also After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again which teaches them about resilience when the going gets a bit tough!
We are embarking on something new in the classroom and could really use your help. Hopefully you can bring this project to life!
