As a team, our school as chosen a variety of books that would best support our curriculum in each grade level and books that would allow students to have a variety of levels to choose from when selecting for themselves. Students will be able to move between classrooms with ease and still find success in reading because there are options of levels on the same topic. We decided on a variety of books from Jean Craighead George that support our science and literacy standards while maintaining student engagement. The book set The Case of the Missing Cutthroat directly connects to our Trout in the Classroom project participation and students can cross grade level read this series during "Reading Buddies." The author also writes books called One Day in the... which there are five different short chapter books and each connects to a habitat. Students are engaged in a fictional text while still being able to pull factual information to apply in class. This directly connects to our second and third grade NGSS standards. Other books include Greek mythology for our 2nd and 3rd grade literacy standards. Finally, we've come to understand and connect with our students deeply. We have learned what they love to read and constantly try to stay on top of finding engaging books that keep them interested and help them learn to love reading. The Hank Zipzer series is a book set we have included because we are finding that it really connects to our students who struggle to read for a variety of reasons. We would like the whole set so more students can begin to find an entry point in loving to read.
