TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students a class set of their favorite books to use for extended text studies.
My 5th grade class is made up of 28 boys and girls of mixed races in Arkansas.
They are dreamers, thinkers, and creators.
They are inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. When my students walk into their classrooms, I want them to know their worth and their ability to succeed. They are our future and they deserve a great start to their long, successful career.
They attend a Title I School, which means there is a high enough percentage of free and reduced lunch to qualify. These ten and eleven year old students are very eager learners; they are like sponges, absorbing all the information and experiences and they keep on wanting more.
My students will use the Tuck Everlasting and Lions of Little Rock books to participate in extended text studies throughout the year. My students will learn skills as readers that will help them throughout their lives. Expanding on the types of books that are in my classroom will ensure that all interest levels are reached to help assist powerful classroom conversations.
These books will provide my students the opportunity to build a connection to the characters, learn from their mistakes, and take away valuable life lessons like: never give up, the power of change, facing reality, everlasting love, etc.
We can learn so much more from books than just practicing reading comprehension, identifying author's purpose and figurative language.
