My Students

My students are special. They are inquisitive and energetic learners. They love challenges and are always willing to try new things. They come from a wide range of differentiated backgrounds. There is an ELL (English Language Learners) population as well as students who are receiving free or reduced lunch. Some of my students come from well traveled and enlightened family situations but many others have very few opportunities. Using creativity to encourage reading is the means to inspire students at all levels.

My Project

As a media coordinator I am consistently looking for books to engage the student's interest. However, it is sometimes difficult to find even animal books that are not too challenging and easy to understand.

Seymour Simon and Zoo Books are classic examples of books that engage the reader and create an ongoing interest in wanting to learn more about all kinds of animals while also increasing their desire to read more nonfiction.

I am hoping to obtain one set of each. This would give even the most reluctant reader a chance to feel successful as a reader. It is encouraging to watch students who normally shy away from nonfiction books wanting to read. I feel these books would be a perfect way for my students to gain the confidence to pursue other areas of nonfiction as well.
