Audio and Paperback Books Benefiting Struggling Readers

BPMS teachers Cindy Note, Anne Huggins, Will Greenleaf and James Kelly submitted a successful CEF grant that will provide audiobooks and paperbacks to support their struggling readers’ needs. One solution was to find relevant, interesting books at their level that can both support and challenge their students. Knowing that reading and listening together allows students to hear strong interpretive reading, and learn critical listening skills was a great incentive to request grant funding from CEF. The value is that they are introduced to new vocabulary, new genres, and new dialects or accents. These teachers found that when the students in these reading classes have consistent support, they then turned to finding books to read even when the audiobook version was not available. We know that our grant for $429.00 will make a very significant difference for these students and those to come through these classes.

Lee Elementary students celebrate their love of reading

Lee Elementary students celebrated their “Love of Reading” month in February by reading The One and Only Ivan as a “Book in Common”. As part of the celebration, all families in the school read the same book, at the same time. Those with a home language of Spanish are provided a copy in Spanish. This project enhances everyday learning by stressing the importance of literacy beyond the school day by reading as a family at home. Families have shared how much they have enjoyed this activity and hope to continue in the future!
