Señora Chase’s Library by Level

img_1659

Here are the titles in my Free Reading Library, organized  by level.  This is by no means an exhaustive list of Comprehensible Input novels…rather the titles I have in my library right now. (If you’ve written a CI novel, let me know and I’ll try to add it to my next book order, or better yet, send me a copy! Hint Hint)

Here are lots of details about my FVR program. One of the ways I help my little darlings pick the perfect book is by writing the reading level on the front cover on a mailing label. I noticed that it was hard for students to select a book at an appropriate reading level without any assistance, so I started leveling them. I strategically chose to level them by letter, rather than number.  (I didn’t want a student in Spanish 2, for example, to feel like they must read a book marked Level 2) The labels also help the books to get back to the correct shelf (errr…rain gutter) after we’ve finished reading.

Disclosure: I don’t have a scientific process for leveling my books and I am no expert…I just read a few paragraphs and assigned a letter. If you strongly disagree with my leveling, let me know and I’ll reconsider! (She’s crazy! That book is absolutely not a D, it’s way easier than another book she marked as a B! Who is this Señora Chase anyway?!)

  1. What a great resource! I would love to be a student in your classroom. For your most novice learners, Edi el Elefante would be a wonderful FVR choice.
