I serve five hundred amazing students from kindergarten through the fifth grade, and most of the students live in the neighborhood surrounding the school. My position is the school librarian, and I love the students' weekly library class visits.
During their visits to the library, students participate in read-alouds from quality authors, discover a wide variety of genres, learn to appreciate literature, and much more.
As an educator and the school librarian, I desire and encourage all the students to become lifelong readers.
Students can learn how the lives and accomplishments of various people changed the world when reading biography books. Students who love animals will enjoy reading I Am Jane Goodall by Brad Meltzer about her work with chimpanzees. Students can learn how India was changed by peaceful protests in I Am Gandhi by Brad Meltzer. In I Am Jackie Robinson, readers will see how his bravery changed sports in America.
Reading about courageous people overcoming challenges can inspire students to face the future with hope and determination.
If our project is funded, history will come alive for our young children while reading the biography books!
