Hi-Lo Books Intentionally Build Reading Fluency
It was a complete accident that I learned the one thing about reading that impacted me the most as a writer. Hi-Lo books intentionally build reading fluency! Although, at the time, I didn’t have a clue it was happening to me.
I grew up learning to read and write in German, although we spoke English in my home. It wasn’t until 3rd grade that I was introduced to reading and writing in English and by then I was behind. Spelling in the English language has always baffled me. And still does. I was a terrible writer and a terrible reader until I went to college. Although it is hard to believe, I was in college when I was introduced to remarkable young adult literature. The books were as part of a teacher education class I was taking.
At the time, I was unaware of the fact that I was, for the first time, reading literature on my reading level.
At the time, I was unaware of the fact that I was, for the first time, reading literature on my reading level. I fell in love with reading the young adult novels and soon became an avid reader. I experienced becoming a better reader because I was reading books on my lower reading level. https://www.lbtillit.com/about-l-b-tillit/
This is one reason I write Hi-Lo books for struggling readers. I know, because I have experienced it, that once we read enough books on our reading level, it doesn’t take too long before our reading levels increase. Read my next blog to find out another discovery I made from this experience.
