Help 2nd Graders Learn About Lions, Tigers And Bears Oh My!
My students need high interest Zoobooks, Zoobook magazines, and drawing books about different animals in order to complete their animal reports.
Books and magazines about animals can provide many things for my students. They can allow my students to practice and improve their nonfiction reading skills. They can also provide information, drawing directions, and real photographs of their favorite animals.
I have a wonderful class of second graders.
Our school is located in a high immigrant, low income community in California. The parents of most of my students never finished high school. Many of my students will be the first ones in the family to finish high school and hopefully college too. Most of my students are English learners and I have several students with learning disabilities too. I also mainstream several autistic students into my all inclusive classroom.
These books and magazines will be used to allow my second grade students to complete an animal report and a realistic drawing that will be part of our science and Language Arts curriculum. My students are beginning a science unit on animal life cycles and a Language Arts unit on animal camouflage. As part of these units, they will each get to choose an animal to learn about and complete an animal report. They will also learn how to draw their animal. The drawing books will be used to help the students with their drawings. These books and magazines will enrich my science and literature units.
This project will allow my students to use high interest books and magazines to learn information about their favorite animals and they will learn how to draw the animal too.
It will enable my students to go beyond just reading about animals in their textbooks. These supplies will enrich my curriculum and allow my students to become excited about what they are learning!
