Reading Challenge: The Transition from Picture Books to Chapter Books. Instructional Resource No. 37.
Baumann, Nancy; And Others
The Reading Challenge project was designed to help students make the transition from picture books to reading and choosing age-appropriate chapter books for recreational reading. This project was conducted throughout the school year with students rotating through different chapter books, usually completing 2 books and related activities each quarter. Based on student and parent surveys and discussions and teacher observations, the Reading Challenge project is successful. While this project was implemented with third-grade students, Reading Challenge is adaptable to different grade and ability levels. (A 24-item book list and a 22-item related picture book list are attached.) (Author/RS)
