Waverly Teacher Building a Love for Reading

Fifth grade literacy teacher, Lila Azhari-Harris, is using book groups to build a love of reading among her students.  Students are in pairs or groups up to four and they read various chapter books on their independent reading level.  Each student is responsible for keeping a book group folder and notebook where they document the strategies and skills that have been assigned to them to use such as text structures, story elements, vocabulary, and grammar.  Mrs. Azhari-Harris makes time to sit and read with groups to check understanding and fluency.  Students are always given a choice in what they would like to read and many are on their fifth or sixth book already.
