Help me give my students a powerful collection of fiction and non-fiction books which illustrate the meaningful connections we have with animals and the resilience we share. Topics include therapy dogs, military animals, rescues, friendships and adventures.
My 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade Library Media students are bright-eyed, optimistic, eager learners from a nurturing neighborhood school in the suburbs.
Our school library is THE PLACE TO BE... where students and teachers gather, where knowledge is shared and expanded, imaginations are free to fly, and where dreams become possibilities!
Books about all ANIMALS - our furriest friends to the wildest beasts -are some of the most popular reads for students. We strive to provide informative and entertaining texts to interest readers of all ability levels.
Highly engaging text illustrating empathy, perseverance, resilience, compassion, selflessness are some of important themes in this collection of quality children's literature. Shelter Dogs: Amazing Stories of Adopted Strays tells the stories of eight adopted dogs who became service dogs, actors and heroes.
These specifically chosen books will be available to all students and also used by individuals and teams during in our Work Like a Dog Battle of the Books event and collaborative service project with our scout troops to create homemade dog and cat toys and collect supplies for local animal rescues.
The stories in these books will deepen students' understanding of the character education qualities we discuss in school (kindness, responsibility, empathy, perseverance, honesty, courage, citizenship, cooperation). The community service opportunity will allow students to taken action and feel the joy of giving!
