My students need 25 copies of the Charlotte''s Web and 25 copies of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, to start the new school year.
I remember the first time I fell in love with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I want my students to share the same love for reading as I do. My classroom is in desperate need of new books, because we are in a title I school.
My students are the most loving and brilliant kids you could ever hope to meet.
They are living in poverty everyday, and almost every student at my school receives free breakfast and lunch. Just because my students are located in an area of poverty does not mean they should not have brand new books to read! Many of the fourth grade teachers must share materials because there is not enough to go around. My students love reading so much that they cannot put a book down once they have started reading. It is difficult to get them to even focus on math or science because they would rather be reading.
I am requesting Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for many reasons. First, the students will relate with Charlie, who lives in and is reminded of the poverty he lives in. He walks by stores he cannot buy items from and eats cabbage soup everyday. His teacher even makes fun of him for not being about to afford Wonka Bars. Charlie beats the odds by getting a golden ticket which his grandparents save for. He beats the odds in the Chocolate Factory because he is a good person. Children who read this book will understand that no matter where you come from, you have the power to change your situation. Not only is Charlotte's Web an assistant with common core, but it is a story about friendship. It can be a scary experience for children to meet new people. However, it is essential for them to develop this skill to be able to function in the real world. This book will help my students to form bonds and connections because they will realize that they all have something in common.
This project is so important for my students!
In order for children to succeed they must have the right materials. They must have the right guidance. They must have the motivation. I believe that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlotte's Web will be interesting stories for the children to read. This is mainly because they can relate to what they will be reading.
