Finding the Right Book

I often notice students returning over and over to the same book or series. It's great to have favorite books! I enjoy reading books more than once. However, it's also important to broaden your horizons with new books to learn about different kinds of vocabulary, characters, settings, and situations. Bostian's reading coach, Mrs. Velardi, and I love to partner for read-arounds to help students branch out in their reading choices. I choose lots of high interest books for students to choose from, and Mrs. Velardi instructs on all the features of books that are essential to notice as you're browsing the shelves. Students take time to preview lots of books and choose the one they are most interested in after the read-around. It's great to see students making informed decisions for their reading!:)
