My Project

We are a few copies short of Fish in a Tree, Wonder, Save Me a Seat, Bud Not Buddy, and Frindle. After lunch each day, our class comes into the classroom eager to make progress in our current class novel. Students select their own spots in the room to listen and take notes and always beg to keep reading when it's time to turn in that day's notes and move to a different subject. With this grant...

Students will strengthen crucial academic skills of providing evidence for their thinking, as they build community by considering characters' unique stories and viewpoints.

Students benefit academically from being able to reference their own copy of a novel that is read aloud in class. This builds reading fluency skills, helps students practice fifth-grade standards of referencing text and providing evidence, and gives them a basis for explaining their own thoughts as they respond to literature and make connections to the real world. Shared class novels also help students build communication skills as they discuss ideas with peers, and give us a basis for strengthening our classroom community as we learn about diverse characters and viewpoints.
