Citrus Heights, Where Reading Is King!
My students need non-fiction books and material to begin the process of learning how to write and think critically and in all subject areas.
Learning to read is hard enough but attempting to do it successfully without proper classroom materials sets students up for failure. This project will directly effects the opportunities provided for my students.
My busy fourth grade students attend a low income neighborhood school.
We are currently not considered a title one school but have the varying needs of a school in poverty. Many eat free breakfast/lunch during the day and do not have the family resources for classroom supplies. Despite their challenges they come to school ready to learn. My fourth grade students are avid readers and writers plunging head first into both reader's and writer's workshop. I strive every day to engage, interest, motivate, and teach skills to prepare them for the future.
The donation items will be used in various ways. Students will dissect current events in the Kids Time magazine opening the classroom up for discussion, debates, and intensive learning potential. Each non-fiction book provides a factual background to introduce both informational writing and reading skills beyond their grade level. These materials provide a gate way into the divergent skills California's new common core standards focuses on. Students will use the materials to be more creative thinkers, explore others views, and compare and contrast genres. Each book or article will provide relevant and interesting information to elevate their classroom experience.
This project is important because it provides varied and current materials to my awaiting learners.
My students will better be able to access common core standards, practice critical thinking skills, and provide the many opportunities to apply their skills in both writing and discussions. Your donation impacts them today and forever.
