My students need new adventures to read and a shelf on which to keep them.
In my growing community in Texas, my student diversity is changing which brings in beautiful blending of cultures, experiences and personalities. This year I had some amazinging opportunities to work with students who had never passed the STAAR (state readiness tests). These students worked so hard to learn vocabulary, to effectively implement on the state test through some texts that draw in their interest based on cultural backgrounds. My heart was overjoyed when results came back and while a few narrowly missed the minimum score, I was embraced by so many who achieved something they had not done before...a passing score on the very first time. Children are learning that growth isn't only about effort, but also very much about the outcome and the balance comes when everyday that bring their best to the table.
These books will help my students go on their literary adventures and share their journeys with one another in class book talks. I design each lesson for students to move inside my classroom as our bodies were not meant to sit idle-especially our children so let’s get up and move and share some reading adventures together. The selected books are contemporary reads which I can utilize for book talks, grammar lessons, vocabulary awareness and linear plot analysis. While I have been growing my library slowly, it is costly to purchase so many contemporary reads to keep exposure of literature current for them.
We will also need a book shelf on which to store our new books.
