My students are primarily of Mexican heritage, but have a broad background. Most of them live in at-risk neighborhoods, and school is a safe place of relief for them. I want to help my students develop a love of learning.
This will be my first year teaching third grade, so I need help building a new library for this class.
I have 18 students who will have little at home in terms of books and technology and I want to offer them a wonderland of resources.
I based my selection of books on series that I have seen students love in the past as well as classics that kids have been reading for decades. All of my students will be able to relate personally to many of these stories, but they will also learn about other people and cultures. There are fun books with lessons, books that we can compare and contrast, and books that will show my students the possibilities of the great big world out s
I have carefully selected these books because my students can identify with characters' stories and learn about other cultures as well. There are also nonfiction books that relate to popular topics in my classroom and integrate with math, science, and social studies units we will study this year. I have also included some fun and popular series books that students always request. The organization systems help students spend less time searching for books in their reading and interest levels and just grab and go! Thank you for helping my students!
