My school encompasses K-4th grade students. We qualify as a Title I school. My students love to learn and explore new material in every possible way. They are often lacking in materials and resources that are needed to achieve the success they are capable of because of financial strain at home. Many of my students see school as their safest place to get food, love, and learning. My students have varying needs, including hearing loss.
Although they may experience struggles at home, they are no different than other students in their desire to learn, have fun, and be the best they can possibly be!
My students are from a variety of backgrounds including high poverty homes, foster homes, single parent homes, and some are being raised by grandparents or other family members.
My students need exposure to historical fiction as well as poetry. A class set of these books will allow them to experience both history and poetry! One book is written as a story in poetry form. Students will be engaged in the plot line while learning the fundamentals of poetry. Another book provides history that has taken place in Pompeii while allowing me introduce our unit on natural disasters.
These two class sets of books will provide my students with science, history, reading, grammar, writing, and so much more!
Both books are high interest for my 9 and 10 years old. They will be fully engaged in the material we are learning.
Thank you for contributing to this project. I can't wait to hear my students whine and complain when it is time to put the books away! The learning will be out of the world!
