Students in my school come from low socioeconomic homes. Majority of the students in our school are bilingual and are struggling to learn to read. Though they are disadvantaged financially, they are willing to work hard in order to be successful in school.
One hundred percent of our students receive free lunches!
With the financial need so great in our school, parents often struggle to provide the needed school supplies. Our students are friendly, helpful, and genuinely want to do well. I have to provide them with all the tools they will need to do well in life!
These materials will have a great impact on my students' learning! Having class sets of these novels allows each of us to read and have our hands on a good book.
These wonderful titles will engage my students in a story and make them want to keep reading!
Students in my class will be able to fall in love with reading when they have the "right" book. It's a great gift to give my students! When literature circles, model reading, and small groups are taught with these novels, the learning goes way beyond our classroom!
