Mrs. Trowbridge from Murfreesboro TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science: Let's Read, Write, Think, and Talk About It

My students need high-quality literature coupled with hands-on experiences that build knowledge. They need multiple opportunities to read about, think about, talk about, and write about the scientific phenomenon such as erosion and weathering.

My Students

Our school is a "Leader in Me" lighthouse school where we are developing a culture of leadership by teaching, modeling, and practicing Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Leadership is coupled with students' natural curiosity as they explore, experiment, and engineer in the world around them. They aren't afraid to take risks or get dirty.

What I love most about our students is that diversity is the vehicle through which we cultivate and grow future scientists, teachers, doctors, welders, electricians, nurses, police officers, and many other kinds of leaders in our world.

Our students are 47% White, 31% African-American, 19% Hispanic, and 3% Asian. Our students have a wealth of diverse experiences and we are constantly learning from each other in this win-win situation!

My Project

As we synergize this school year, we are working to build learning units based on our new state science standards. The standards are driving our unit topics and we are integrating literature and information texts to teach the reading standards and build knowledge about the science phenomenon.

The books chosen for this project have been carfully selected to incorporate the science standards through chosen complex texts.

Mountain Dance by Thomas Locker and How Mountains Are Made by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld offer different perspectives on the same science topic.

All the texts reflect our state's Read to Be Ready initiative in which we are striving to have 75% of all 3rd graders reading on grade level by 2025.
