My Students

Children need to be actively engaged in learning. They need to be involved and excited about what you are teaching them. For many of my students, nonfiction text is what grabs their attention.

I have 18 kindergarten students.

They are all very bright and love to read. They love listening to different types of text, but nonfiction is definitely their favorite. If they are easily distracted, a nonfiction text will grab their attention in no time. I work at an elementary school that is located right near the Air Force base. Our school is 80% military, but is not considered a DOD school. I love working at a school that is surrounded by military families. I have three dads who are deployed this school year. This can be very difficult for their children at times, but it definitely teaches them the true meaning of hero. Many military children do get a chance to travel and experience new things. I think this is partly why my children are so interested in nonfiction. They want to see real pictures and learn about them. They love the experience that goes along with the text.

My Project

I am requesting a subscription to the classroom magazine "Let's Find Out". I am requesting for each child to have their own issue. It is a weekly nonfiction magazine and allows for each child to learn and respond to what he or she is learning. I am also requesting nonfiction readers for my classroom library. I have spent a lot of money on building up my library over the past several years. I have tried to buy a variety of genres, but am in desperate need of more nonfiction readers.

This project is important to me because it is something that I know my students are passionate about.

In today's society, it is sometimes difficult to keep students engaged. Every time I pick up a nonfiction book, their hands are raised and they are ready with questions. Reading a variety of texts does help increase reading and I would love to be able to introduce new nonfiction text to my class.
