The challenge that I am facing is that students are not excited about learning anymore. I want them to be just as excited about school as they are while playing games and watching TV. With these new books, I'm hoping they can bring learning back to life.
My students are from low income families around Texas.
The parents are not motivated about school, and therefore the students are not either. I have students that don't have one book at home to read. Many of my students are raising other siblings at home. Using these books will help them be engaged in school and make them more excited about learning. My goal is to excite the students so much about learning that the parents wants to become more involved in their learning. The students in my classroom all have different strengths and show me these every day. I feel the need to expand the resources in my classroom to help all students learn in the way that fits them best.
Having gone back to the classroom, I am short on essential supplies that my students would directly benefit from. The books that I have selected are a variety of fiction stories and nonfiction learning materials which will enrich my classroom library for my third grade students. These books are age-appropriate and will help develop the reading skills of the children in each classroom. The topics are engaging and will keep the interest of the reader. This makes learning new words fun and engaging.
Each classroom library provides fun learning opportunities for children who have completed assignments early as well as during planned reading times.
