Multicultural Reading Level Books
Middlefork 2nd Grade teacher Hillary Davis is asking to request funds for multicultural leveled library books to be used during Reading Workshop in second grade. Teachers have several books about diversity to use for read aloud, but these books would be at an appropriate reading level for students to read independently. Having these books in the classroom library would give them an authentic experience to learn about the world, and see themselves represented in books at their very own reading level. All second grade students would benefit from this request, but the books could also be shared with readers in other grade levels.
The 4 average levels for second graders are J, K, L and M, and would cost $547.30.
To add two more levels (H & I), it would bring the price up to $963.29.
