This New Year, it’s important for teachers to take stock of their classroom library to ensure it has a strong selection of fiction and nonfiction books to encourage independent reading. Through independent reading, students will gain a greater appreciation of books and acquire the reading comprehension and critical thinking skills necessary to positively impact student achievement. But not all students read at the same level, so it’s important to have books that appeal to your strongest readers as well as your most reluctant readers.
Guided reading packs from Scholastic are perfect for students reading above grade level as they provide a seamless addition to your independent reading program. They’ll encourage an even greater love of reading among your strong readers and inspire them to read even more. These packs are also an effective way to engage students reading below grade level as they offer more accessible stories for additional reading practice.
