Help me give my students the opportunity to complete these great novels. My students completed Gary Paulsen's award-winning novel Hatchet and are so eager to continue the series. Please help bring these and several other books to us!
We are a public elementary school located in Jersey City, NJ, serving children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. While we are located in the downtown area our students come from all over the city.
Our student population is diverse in the truest sense of the word: Our student demographic is approximately 65% Asian and 35% of our population is a mixture of African American, Latino and white.
The students I teach have shown the capacity to go above and beyond in their education. I teach enrichment to small groups of students for language arts and mathematics in grades 2-5. These students love to be challenged and to think beyond what is given to them. They are truly impressive!
As an enrichment teacher, I provide 6-7 students per class with an advanced learning opportunity. With this being said, books are hard to come by because of my "pull out" model, and lack of classroom library. The books that are chosen are selected by each of the students. These books provide me with the opportunity to enrich their learning in both reading and comprehension. Students will have access to their own books which can be taken home. The books chosen provide an open door for students to use their imagination and give elementary level students the ability to become college and career ready, with the lessons I will provide.
