My students are determined, energetic learners with a passion to explore and grow. Despite the hardships they face, my students walk into the classroom each day with big smiles ready to learn!
My school is an inner-city school with 100% of students receiving free breakfast and lunch.
Many students live in poverty, struggle with the English language and have extremely limited resources. Some of my students are homeless or in foster care. Others are new to the country, while some live with a caretaker other than their parent.
I am requesting a class set of books so I can complete a unit of study on biographies. Martin Luther King Jr. by Rob Lloyd Jones will be used as my whole class text. Through the use of this text, my students will have a better understanding of the characteristics of biographies.
It's extremely important that each student has their own copy of the text during reading instruction.
This allows them to follow along during the teacher read aloud, stay actively engaged during partner reading, and independently read a text we've discussed in class.
