Series Books Build Motivation and Success

I would like to thank the Howard-Winn Foundation for the grant to purchase new books to use with Reading Recovery students.  The books are Reading Recovery leveled and are written in a series, with recurring characters.  Series books provide a foundation of background knowledge and builds anticipation for the next book in the series.

It is highly engaging and motivational for struggling readers to make connections with book characters within a series. Students learn how to deal with situations in their lives as they watch the characters develop and handle problems that arise in a series. Series books help build social skills and strong relationships, which helps capture kid's attention and interest and makes them want to read. Through this grant, Reading Recovery students will be able to read series books at their instructional level, which leads to success with reading.

Thanks again to the Howard-Winn Foundation for helping build reading success and for your continued support for education and our students!!
