Our school implements an instructional model called the Daily 5, which encourages students towards reading achievement. During this time, students choose a reading activity to engage with while the teacher works with other students one-on-one or in a small group to provide more personalized instruction.
My need is to have multiple copies of the same book when working with a small group of students for them to be able to access instruction without sharing copies of the text. The need compounds as different small groups are reading books at different levels, and multiple sets of books are needed at each level for students to work with before they have progressed to another reading level.
For example, if Student John is reading books around "level G," I would have him working with me in a small group with other students reading at "level G." One week, we would all work with the book "El Diente de Julio," so I would need 5-6 copies of that one text. The following week, those students are still reading at "level G," so I would need 5-6 copies of another text at the same level. I would need 5-6 copies of many texts at "level G" to use when working with this group of students. At the same time, Student Jane is reading books around "level I." Student Jane's small group, then, needs 5-6 copies of a "level I" book like "Yesenia en la Oscuridad" to read that same week. In this way, I need multiple sets of books at several different reading levels.
