Exploring Animal Life Through Books

Help me give my students a variety of non-fiction texts to inspire them, increase their knowledge of the world, and to help them learn about what they can do to help sustain animal life.

My Students

I have the pleasure of learning alongside 17 enthusiastic, energetic, caring and curious kindergarten children who care about each other and the world. We connect using Twitter and Skype. We engage with these platforms so we can have conversations and learn from others globally.

Our school is a fun and safe place to learn.

Kindergarten is a wonderful place to learn because we ask questions, make friends and explore what we are curious about. Learning is lots of fun in Kindergarten.

My Project

The books I am asking for will give all of my students' additional opportunities to learn sight words, connect letters, sounds, and make predictions based on rich, colorful real photographs of animal and plant life. The nonfiction books will deepen their understanding of animal and plant life and how important it is to care for all living things.

Through small guided reading experiences, these texts will offer small groups of children to read together.

As beginning readers, the books will offer an opportunity for all my students to be successful readers and to be inspired to read so that they can increase their knowledge of the animals they are interested in.

As a kindergarten teacher, I want all my students to be successful readers and to be inspired to care about the natural world. These books will be motivating and be engaging for all my students.
