Ms. Sakar from Houston TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students new nonfiction books and materials that help encourage and foster their love of learning through reading.
My 5th grade students live in inner city Houston. I love that I have the opportunity to share my love of learning with such resilient and talented children.
My students favorite part of my class is when I read to them, it is a special time dedicated to learning and cultivating a community of readers.
I use this time to share my reading experiences and model reading skills and habits through high quality texts. My 5th graders are beginning to develop a passion for nonfiction texts and are eager to learn more about the world around them.
Many of the texts will be used as teacher read alouds, which is where I will model habits of good readers and then I model my thinking out loud. My read alouds become special treasures that all of the students want to get their hands on. I plan to use the colored caddies on each table for sticky notes, (used for stopping and jotting their thoughts) as well as dictionary resources.
As an adult, 95% of the text we read on a daily basis is non-fiction, so it is crucial that students know how to successfully read these types of texts.
I chose many nonfiction titles from the "I Wonder Why" series so that I can engage students in learning and loving how to read non-fiction texts.
