Non-Fiction for Growing Readers

My students need engaging biographies and informational books. These series are highly coveted and loved by all!

My Students

My third graders are full of life and ready to learn every day. One of my favorite questions to answer is, "Can I take this book home to read?" My students vary in reading level from 1st grade to 4th grade, so it is important to have high interest books available in a range of reading levels.

We are a Title I school that is located in an urban area that serves families from many backgrounds and cultures.

The school serves a diverse population where over half of the students are bilingual. Nearly 60% of the students are Hispanic, 17% African-American, and 12% Caucasian. Additionally, 99% of our students qualify for the free and reduced-price lunch program. More than three-fourths of the student population resides in low-income apartment complexes, and many also live in Section 8 Housing.

Our staff works to fill not only educational needs, but social and emotional needs also. Our students are amazing and try each day to do their very best. Their spirit to learn and become successful inspires me every day!

My Project

My students need more non-fiction books. Non-fiction books are not only engaging to students, but also help build and strengthen their vocabulary. My students love exploring and learning new things and what better way to foster this learning, than through engaging texts.

I have previously purchased the National Geographic readers and they absolutely LOVE them!

I have to replace some of my current titles because they are falling apart from being read so much! They are definitely a favorite in our classroom library.

The pictures and information in the books are colorful and engaging and reader friendly for young readers.
