My Students

My school library is a very busy place. On any given day you will find students browsing the shelves searching for their next just-right book, researching or using the school's computers, taking Accelerated Reader tests, or tinkering on a maker-space activity. My theme for the 2019-2020 school year is "Reading is Where the Magic Begins". My school is a small neighborhood school found in a rural area outside of Lafayette, Louisiana. We are a Top Gains school with our performance scores on the rise. As the librarian, I work hard to help to bring the students reading levels up while fostering a love of reading. We are a school categorized in the highest-poverty range in the local public school system which qualifies our school for the 100% free lunch program. Many of our students do not have access to the internet at home, nor have the means to access the public library. The majority of our student population does not have broader life experiences extending beyond our small community. For this reason, I have chosen a book series that help to expand their background knowledge of history and the world outside of Louisiana.

My Project

I am requesting books from two different series to accommodate the 4th graders and 5th graders at my school. These grade levels will be challenged to read at least 10 books from the series, take and pass an AR test for each book which will then earn them an invite to our end of the year History Headlines Party.

I plan to have a wide range of historical fiction and biographies so that every child can find books that will interest them.

The "I Survived" series will target fourth-grade reading levels, whereas the "Who was" series will target 5th-grade reading levels.
