Battle of the Books 2012-2013
My students need interesting books to be motivated to read.
Do you remember Book It? I loved the Book It program. I was so motivated to read. Now I need to motivate my students with BATTLE OF THE BOOKS!
My students need motivation to read!
They cannot purchase their own books. This project will give students the chance to make reading fun by working together in literature circles. In March, students will participate in a school wide Battle of the Books, and in April a district wide battle.
My students come from a low socioeconomic neighborhood. Many students receive free and reduced lunch. Other students are not able to afford clothing or food. Some days school lunch may be their only meal. My students are hard workers and good kids; they deserve they best. They need a chance at an education to improve their lives.
I am requesting multiple copies of books. These copies will allow students to read the books and discuss content together. I will teach students how to participate in literature circles. Reading and discussing together will assist students in comprehending grade level material.
My project is important because even though my students are minorities from a low socioeconomic community, they can still succeed. These students need the chance to love learning. Battle of the Books will give my students the motivation they need to learn and be just as intelligent as any students from any area.
My students need to improve reading skills.
I need 8 copies each of 8 books to be used in literature circle. In April, students will participate in a district wide Battle of the Books.
