Classroom Library

     I have devoted much time to leveling every book in my classroom library and organizing it by genre, topic, author, etc. so that I can direct students to appropriate reading material. Experts have discovered that even very young students can read for extended periods of time when they are matched with books that they can read with 95% or higher word accuracy rate, and they are more successful when reading books that interest them. My leveled library serves both of these purposes because, although I direct students to certain color coded books, they are still choosing the books within those levels that they want to read.
