My Students

Reading is more than reciting words...it is learning in progress.

My students love to read and learn.

However, while I do enjoy working in a small school district, it is not always feasible for me to purchase all of the texts that would be beneficial to my students. My students desire vocabulary building activities and absolutely love nonfiction texts.

My Project

My students need a set of National Geographic readers, two nonfiction Holocaust books, a set of nonfiction comprehension folders, and a vocabulary-building board game. With these materials, I plan to not only increase my students' vocabularies, but I also plan to increase their knowledge of the world around them. Without knowledge of either of these, my students will not be correctly prepared to function in the "real world." In this project, I have requested books about the Holocaust as well as a game to help build their vocabularies. In my class, we read "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas." With these texts I have requested, the students will learn valuable, factual information to help increase their learning and understanding.

With the nonfiction books I have chosen, I hope to prepare my students to be leaders in the future.

We read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas in my class and most of the texts I have will be used along with that unit in order to bring the reality of the Holocaust to their minds.
