Ms. Capobianco from Jamaica NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bundles of Books!

My students need books to help them build their comparison skills! We will be learning about how to compare and contrast fiction texts with nonfiction articles to prepare for our 3rd grade state tests.

My Students

My class is a class of 26 enthusiastic learners who come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. The majority of my students receive free or reduced price lunch. Our classroom is our home away from home. We all come together as a community for lessons and fun activities. However, our resources are limited. We are in need of tools to help meet the needs of each individual learner in our classroom.

In our classroom, we are one big family and we are part of a larger school community.

Some students struggle with daily academic skills, especially those students who find traditional learning activities difficult or who are learning English as their second language. My students need the option of fun, alternative activities and lessons to support their learning styles.

My Project

In third grade, my students will be preparing for New York State testing. One requirement of state testing is for students to be able to think critically about texts across genres. We will begin working on these skills now in order to prepare them for their move to third grade next year. With our high population of ENL students, these books will help students better visualize and understand what they are reading and will lead to them building strong connections among a variety of texts.

We will use these high quality literary texts and pair them with nonfiction articles on the same topic to help us become masters of comparison.

We will learn how to analyze both fiction and nonfiction texts and look at how they are related. We will discuss the similarities and differences and have sophisticated conversations about the texts we are studying. These books will be instrumental in helping my students be successful readers and thinkers.
