Book Boxes: And Guided Readers.

Beginning readers need a lot of practice; research has shown that fluency improves with repeated readings. Giving students copies of guided readers to keep at home provides additional practice opportunities for them. 

A home reading program will be more effective if the student has a way to save or store the books. A book box is a great at-home storage solution. A book box can easily be made out of a shoe box - either a regular shoe box or a purchased plastic shoe box. Your students can decorate the boxes at home. They can be elaborately decorated or just covered with stickers. 

To encourage completion of this special homework project, have a Book Box Show and Tell. After the students share their boxes, send them home again with one or two books. By the end of the year, the box will be overflowing with books that your students can read!

Kindergarten Kiosk offers a wide variety of guided reading sets and also includes at least one guided reader with all 50 of our thematic units.
