This project will fund class sets of some of our favorite books for 4th grade. They will be read and studied in class through literary circles and novel studies. My team will use these books to teach important English Language Arts skills through engaging literature. Also included, will be a class set of headphones and storage bags for each student. This will give all my students the ability to listen to educational podcast and other activities on their iPads. Technology has become such a large part of the classroom, and headphones are a necessity. When I think back to my most memorable lessons as a student, I have a hard time recalling anything specific. What I do remember, quite vividly, are the book studies that we did. These wonderful novels pulled me in and I was learning so much without even realizing it. With the increase of technology in the classroom, I fear that students are falling out of love with picking up a book and diving in. When students connect with a story emotionally, they will learn far more than they ever could through worksheets. I want to give my students that chance to dive deep into a story and be impacted by the lessons they will learn.
