Hungry for Nonfiction Books

My students need nonfiction books so they can learn about the world.

My Students

My students LOVE nonfiction books! Every day during reading time, they are anxious to share the coolest facts that they are learning from their nonfiction books. I want to continue fostering their enthusiasm for nonfiction reading by offering my students more book choices.

My students live in a high-poverty area of Washington State.

85% of our school population qualifies for free and reduced lunch. Half of my students speak English as a second language. Nevertheless, our students are excited about school and learning. I have taught many of these students when they were in kindergarten. They have grown as readers and they are ready to read all that the world has to offer!

My Project

In second grade, students are asked to study a nonfiction topic of their choice. They will research as much as they can about their topic and present their findings to other second graders. The problem is that each student needs a book that is just right for them, not too easy and not too hard, and I have very few books at each reading level in my classroom. Students are having to reread many of the same books over and over again, which is not helping them grow as readers. I want to maintain the high level of enthusiasm in my classroom throughout our nonfiction units and get more nonfiction books that kids can read!

My school has taken some pretty drastic budget cuts in the past few years.

We do not have money to buy basic learning tools like books. Please give my students the gift of a continued love and appreciation of reading!
