Variety Is The Spice Of Life!

My students need a variety of reading materials during guided reading instruction to assist in learning about text structure, figurative language, and other skills.

My Students

We are a brand new elementary school, that is piloting many exciting endeavors for our school district. One of these is a digital learning initiative that includes ebooks and etextbooks. However, we have a limited number of actual books, and 0 guided reading books at this time.

My students are enthusiastic, bright learners who love visiting the library and are constantly requesting new books.

Unfortunately, as a brand new (August 2012) elementary school our limited funds have not allowed us to purchase any books for our guided reading library.

My Project

I am requesting funds for Common Core Exemplar guided reading sets that will be used to differentiate instruction for my students, promote literacy, and help support the new National Common Core Standards. Specifically, I will use these books to instruct students in all areas of reading, engage students in literature circles and book clubs, and emphasize making connections through cross-curricular content.

This project will help meet the needs for all my students and will help me differentiate instruction for students.

Research shows that guided reading is an essential part of any literacy block, and these resources will ensure that students will have books at their level, receive instruction in all reading areas, and gain skills in complex comprehension strategies for both fiction and non-fiction texts.
