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?!)
