My Students

Our class is a group of diverse 4th graders who are a reflection of the racially, culturally and socioeconomically diverse city we live in. We speak many different languages and have rich cultural heritages, but we all share a love of learning.

Our school is Title I in a very high risk/high needs community.

Many of our students rely on the school not only as a source of learning but other basic needs such as clothing and food are provided at the school. Our school is the community anchor and a safe haven for most children.

My Project

Help my students improve their reading skills and develop a love of reading at the same time. Many of my 4th grade students are two grade levels or more behind in reading. Research has shown that reading at the appropriate level is important but many (most) 2nd grade and lower level texts are not of any interest to my 4th grade students. The books that I would like to purchase are low level / high interest and will not only help my students learn to read, but also help them to learn that reading can be fun!

Babymouse, Lunch Lady, and Bone are some great examples of high interest texts that are accessible to my low-level-readers.

Having these books in my classroom will make it easier for my students to get the most effective reading materials. As a bonus, since these books have high-appeal to 4th graders my low-level readers and on-grade readers will be able to read and discuss the same reading materials.
