4th Grade Reading and Writing Books with Jennifer Serravallo
Help me give my students inspirational, engaging, mentor texts to support their growth as readers to develop effective writers.
I believe every child deserves the opportunity for an excellent education, and I am proud to partner with my school, other educators, families, and community leaders to strive toward this goal. I teach in a high poverty school zone in which 100% of our students receive free breakfast and 85% receive free or reduced lunch. These amazing students need additional support because most of them come from low-income single family households of which many have little to no support or resources. Despite some of the challenges they face in and around their environment, every year my students come to school excited, full of life and eager to learn.
Each day I attempt to continue to significantly impact the life trajectories of students in this local areas high-needs community.

The collection will allow students to hear what good writing sounds like, which will essentially equipped students with the skills necessary to transfer appropriate writing to paper.
This collection of books will be used to implement my writing workshop which will create good readers, listeners and effective writers.

The texts included in the Go-To Books will lend itself nicely to the strategies students will be learning and practicing to become exceptional writers!
