Mrs. Nesbitt from Arlington VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need high-engagement nonfiction texts for our nonfiction unit and nonfiction book clubs.
We are a class of twenty-six third graders in a Title 1 school. Many of these students are English language learners and children from low-income families. Even though my students come from many different backgrounds, together we form a team whose goal is to build a solid foundation for learning.
My students are lovers of reading and will sink their teeth into any book they can get their hands on, especially nonfiction.
Third graders in my classroom are vary in reading levels from 1st grade to 4th grade. They love to read and learn but are missing high-interest nonfiction books in our classroom library.
Third graders love to learn about a variety of topics ranging from bees to Jackie Robinson to volcanoes. For nonfiction teaching to be effective, the classroom library must have books that students want to read.
The current nonfiction library is outdated, has mostly picture books and desperately needs a makeover to sustain student interest.
My library lacks high-engagement topics and titles that my students want to read. Students should have anywhere from 4-8 books in their book bag at any time. With 26 students and 4 months out of the year spent teaching nonfiction, it is imperative that the classroom library has a large volume of books as well as a range of topics. This project will fuel the spark within my students to be life-long learners and readers.
