  • Discuss ways teachers could build up their classroom libraries…book swaps, garage sales, scholastic 50% off, fund raisers, internet free resources, Reading A-Z,
  • Studies have shown that if a book is too hard, children become overwhelmed. Instead of attempting to read the text with the repertoire of strategies they have, children give up trying. In this situation it appears a child cannot read at all, even though on a more appropriate text they show the ability to use a host of reading strategies.The essence of matching children with books lies in finding the book that is “just right” for their current development. When books are selected, children can read successfully and overcome the few challenges a book may pose with little support from the teacher.
  • Time permitting – provide each table with books to practice leveling

    3. 3. “Effective classroom teachers are the only absolutely essential element of an effective school.” - Allington & Cunningham, 1997
    4. 4. Literacy development is dependent upon effective instruction, access to quality reading material and the time engaged in reading.
    5. 5. Research  A study completed by Anderson et.al. illustrates that an avid reader in fifth grade reading 90 minutes per day scored in the 98th percentile on standardized tests.
    6. 6. Classroom Libraries Research tells us that classroom libraries are utilized more than school or public libraries. Richard Allington suggests a primary classroom teacher needs to have a minimum of 1200 different titles in a classroom library and intermediate classrooms should have a minimum of 750 titles. Students must have access to books (at their level and their choice) in order to practice the skills and strategies being taught.
