Real Books for Real Kindergarten Kids

My students need 6 sets of leveled nonfiction reading books to read at their limited reading level.

My Students

My students come from lower socioeconomic homes. Most of them are non-English speaking families who love their children but are unable to provide them with life experiences outside their community.

Our five year old students have very little book experience but love books once they are exposed to them.

Many of the students come from immigrant families. These families tend to move frequently, resulting in quite a bit of turnover at our school. Our Southern California school is a School Improvement site, with many students qualifying for free and reduced lunch.

My Project

I am requesting 6 sets of leveled nonfiction reading books to read at their limited reading level. My students have very limited experience with life outside their families. Being able to read non-fiction books will expose them to world beyond themselves. It is very empowering for children to be able to read independently. Reading opens doors and minds. Additionally reading non-fiction books will be a spring board for discussions and help teach the critical thinking skills which are the focus of the Common Core curriculum.

How wonderful for five year olds to be able to open whole new worlds!

What a great opportunity for them to change their knowledge base and to start their journey as life long learners! I am excited to help them do this!
