Ms. Solarek from Seattle WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need just right books to support social studies, literacy and geography!
Ready, set, READ! In my classroom I have a great library but it is missing books to really GRAB the attention of my students, particularly the boys! I want to add high interest books to my library that will make my kindergarten and first grade boys LOVE to read!
My students are amazing individuals that I have the pleasure of spending the day with learning about themselves and their cultures.
Moreover, within the walls of my classroom each year I have at least 10 different languages represented and numerous different cultures. It is an amazing environment to teach about differences because it is so evident. I truly am indebted to my students for all they teach me about life and their cultures.
In my classroom we use Teacher's College Reading Workshop curriculum. For 60 minutes of our day, my students are reading books at their developmental level. In this proposal, I am asking for a set of Mo Willems books. These books are great texts for beginning readers because of their vivid pictures, interesting characters and developmental reading level. With these books I can use the sets to pull small groups to target and differentiate students' reading needs. With such a wide range of readers in my classroom I need books to captivate readers at any level not just the students reading the higher levels. I've also asked for a new non fiction books to support our social studies and reading unit called "Families Around the World". The goal of the unit is to teach students about diversity not only across the world but also within our classroom.
As a reading teacher, I look for any characters or text sets that will pull in my students and kick start their reading career.
This character set has done exactly that. But in my classroom I only have 6 books, and I need more of this text set to meet the reading needs of my students. Each week my students book shop for 8 books that they are interested in, and my library needs the addition of the books requested in this project to attract my readers, especially my readers that are below grade level.
