I am a 4th grade teacher and instead of using the standard basil text for reading instructioin I choose to expose my students to many different genres of classic children's literature for reading instruction. These class sets of books are used to engage my students in the process of reading and to take them from the beginning of a book to the end. This allows me to expose my students to character development, themes, and plot structure in the context of an authentic reading experience. The books I select are chosen specifically to meet the needs of the students I teach. I am always looking for the perfect book for my students to be able to make connections with and become engaged in. I have found that this form of reading instruction builds reading literacy and fights illiteracy which has become such an epidemic in our country. Exposing children to forms of quality literature builds an interest in searching out good books independently. I am asking for two class sets of books that have been known to engage readers for many years. These books are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl and Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. I would need 27 copies of each books to make up a class set and also the teachers guides to help me in driving instruction. These two books are rich in themes and connections that my students can relate to. These books will help me in enriching my instruction for years to come. I am a second year teacher and any help that I can receive in purchasing supplies for my classroom is extremely appreciated.
