I work in a low-income, high-needs, Title-One, high mobility, majority minority, 75%English language-learners school, with fifth grade boys who love to read.
I have a classroom full of children who love reading, however I'm running out of books that are interesting to my male students. Many of them are very particular about the books they read and I find that they read better and more thoroughly when the books are about boys and their adventures.
I've attended numerous conferences on boys and reading. In these conferences I have compiled a list of 25 books that grab the attention of boy readers. The books have young male characters that have adventurous lives; lives that relate to their own! These books will help to motivate them to learn more!
Your support will ensure that my students are reading current boy adventure books, and will be helping to further their education. You will make it possible for my students to speak passionately about reading and build a foundation on which they can succeed in middle school and high school.
