Mrs. Compton from Brenham TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students books that they can relate to. I get to have the opportunity to read to my students every day. While we read the story, we point out inferences, theme, contrast and contradictions, etc.
Our Middle School houses students in 5th and 6th grade. We provide rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment all while having fun and pushing for student growth. Our goal is to not only set them up for success in Junior High and High School, but to show them what it is to be a productive member of society and to ensure that each student knows that they matter, are capable of greatness, and are cared for.
The mentor texts I have selected already have a home and a distinct purpose in my classroom. Every day, we have time set aside for me to read a book aloud to the students. This has quickly become a favorite part of the day for my students as they love to be read to. My students will also utilize these quality texts throughout the year in small group skill practice.
These books play an integral role in our daily schedule and will be used time and time again for both reading and writing.
My students are noticeably more engaged when the lessons and activities involve books they are all familiar with. I have seen how a picture book read aloud positively affects my students' understanding and engagement, and I know that all of these titles will do just that.
