Help me give my students a variety of nonfiction texts that fit both the interest of my students and some of the content we learn about in class!
My students live in a Title 1 school district which means a majority live below the poverty line. Some of my students live in a home where only their first language is spoken, and it isn't English. The only time they speak English is at school. All of my students need that someone to go that extra mile for them. They come from hard working homes and sometimes just need that extra love and attention. Our school is the best place for that. The students in this school are loved and cared for in such a way that it warms my heart. These students deserve the world, and I would love to be able to give them a piece of it.
Nonfiction text is a massive part in a good classroom library. A good classroom library consists of 50 - 70% nonfiction and I am trying to build up my supplies. This list consists of books that interest my students and covers some of the tougher content that we learn about during the school year.
Donations to this project will help my students develop background knowledge that helps prepare them for their lives ahead.
Nonfiction texts are a great way for students to learn new information and build that love of reading. Supporting this project will help my students achieve both.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
