Unfortunately, We Don't Have A Series of Unfortunate Events
My students need their own copies of A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket to read along, increasing their reading fluency, as I read to them.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach learning support students in a socioeconomically disadvantaged area. The majority of my students come from low-income families, often times being cared for by a single-parent or even a relative other than a parent. Several students come to class prepared to ask for a pencil in order to write. During writing activities, I’ve learned all too well students' difficulties outside of school. The support and structure my students receive in school could very well be the only support and structure they receive throughout their day. My students have vivid imaginations and plenty of heart. I strive to fuel that spirit with novels and writing prompts, enabling their creativity to shine.
I absolutely loved Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events when I was in middle school. I know that my students will love it too! Having their own books to read from will enable students to look back while completing fun comprehension activities as well as pictures to enhance their imaginations while we read along. In addition, students will become familiarized with text structure and organization. Also, students may even be so brave as to read to the class themselves. A student can learn a lot from the story itself, but the possibilities become endless if I am able to provide each student with a book of his or her own from which to read.
