Mrs. Dick from Hampstead NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaged in Literature

My students need great literature to practice/review our fourth grade literature standards. It is very important for students to see and be engaged in excellent novels to help find their love of reading.

My Students

Our school is a Title I school in Hampstead, North Carolina. Our school services students from Pre-K through 5th grade. Our school is experiencing tremendous growth and resources are limited.

My group of students will be a mixed ability group with many different interests and backgrounds.

They love to learn and take on new adventures.

This year I am thrilled to have taken on a new adventure in fourth grade. I teach two classes of fourth grade students. I have the opportunity to teach ELA and Social Studies. This year I have been able to share some amazing books with my students. They love being read to and they share their excitement about reading with me. Thanks to a great group of parents in our classroom, we have been able to add to our read aloud and mentor text collection. Next, I would love to get some great literature into my students' hands. I want them to continue to be excited about reading. I would like to add several sets of books to our classroom so that I can share this great literature with my small guided reading groups and as a shared reading.

My Project

My students need great books that have excellent examples of figurative language and are good examples of great writing. I want to continue to grow my students' love of reading. They have read some great books in class this year and I want to be able to introduce them to some wonderful authors to help them continue to thrive and grow as readers.

I would like to use these books in guided reading groups as well as a whole class shared reading.

During these times, we will have great discussions regarding what is happening in the stories. It is a great way to review the different fictional reading standards that we have learned this year.
