My students need new and exciting novels to enhance their library and pique their interests. These includes Disney novelizations of The Descendants, Pirates of the Caribbean, Brave, Oz, Maleficent, Jurassic Park, Thor and many more!
My students are an amazing group of learners from disadvantaged backgrounds. 100% of our students receive free lunch and 1/3 of the students speak a language other than English at home. The classroom consists of 12 children in special education classes and many more coping with social emotional issues.
The students have limited experiences outside the classroom walls.
They have limited exposure to current academic materials and often utilize used and donated supplies. The children are eager learners just waiting for the right tools to help them succeed. Please help a great group of children soar high to reach their full potential!
These books will have a major impact on my students learning! Getting students interested in picking up and sticking with a book is half the battle! Once students see these exciting, familiar titles, they will be fighting over who gets to read them first!
Developing a love of reading through these books will build their confidence and help them become stronger readers.
With many reluctant readers, they need to develop a strong connection with a book with which they feel comfortable and successful. These novels will build their confidence and improve their reading skills immensely! The number one way to get students to become better readers is to get them to read - and these books will get them to do just that! This gift will help many students foster a love of reading for years to come!
