My Students

I have moved into a new school and a new grade level. I have never taught 5th grade before and my new school has less classroom space and I am in need of organizational supplies and chapter books.

Teachers that move schools end up spending so much time and money making their spaces bright and welcoming to their children.

I am going to need to be extra creative this move. I have some very small bookshelves and need ways to display books for my students as well as more upper grade books for them to read.

I have such a sweet group of 5th graders. They smile and greet me each day with fist bumps. Half of my students receive free or reduced rate lunch due to their families economic struggles. Our school serves over 50% of these types of families making us a Title I School. Many of my students' families share a home with others. Some work so long they do not see their children during the week and grandparents are tucking them into bed. My class is mostly Hispanic and Vietnamese and many students are 1st generation citizens.

My Project

My new 5th grade students just love reading! I can't get them to put books down. They inspire me every day. They are reading everything I have in my tiny library with smiles on their faces. We read inside, on the floor and out under a tree.

I just don't have enough books to keep them inspired and reading as our year goes on.

We need to expand our horizons and read about famous people in our world. We want to create video book reports and art projects based on real-life biographies. These "Who Was" books are very high interest and so much fun to read. We also need some shelves and ways to organize our new books
