"Can I get a new book? When do we go the library? Are we going to get to read again today?" These are just some of the questions I hear my students ask each day. They are curious, full of wonder, and they love to read. Our school is a Title I school in a low-income district. The access my students have to books is what I can provide them.
Like a child on Christmas morning about to open a gift, my students' excitement for a new book is palpable.
They are thirsty for new books and opportunities to read them Often, shared reading is the most joyful moment in their day.
What do we learn when we look at the world through the eyes of others? Reading a class set of the classic novel Black Beauty by Anna Sewell will provide my students will get the opportunity to dig deeper into this question. With their own copy of the text, students will be able to annotate and jot down ideas that they can constantly refer to.
In reading and discussing this story together, my students will learn many things including the importance of kindness.
They will analyze characters and draw inferences, and be able to make up their own minds about the ethical issues they read about.
