Mrs. Bradford from Pinson AL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students picture books that help teach life lessons along with literacy skills.
I teach 5th grade at a Title I school which means that most of my students are on free or reduced-price lunches. Due to limited funding, my students are limited to engaging books unless I use my personal money to purchase the engaging, interesting books.
When given the opportunity, my students never cease to amaze me of the abilities that they are capable of when they are given the right tools.
I find that my 5th-grade students tend to teach me more than I teach them every year. Because my students are limited in the resources they have access to, I can only imagine what they would accomplish if they were given the resources they actually wanted and thought were interesting.
The books that will be funded in this project are all picture books that will be used to focus on different literacy skills and life lessons. More specifically, some of the books teach students how to use a classroom library, how to establish a classroom community, or how to develop empathy towards each other.
In order for students to develop a love for reading, they must be exposed to a teacher who models love for reading.
When teachers read out loud to students it allows the teacher to model what it looks and sounds like while reading a book, along with strategies that help with comprehension, accuracy, and fluency. More importantly, read alouds encourage the students to develop a love of reading.
