I am blessed to be rolling up to 4th grade with the same group of students. My students are eager learners and diehard readers. They are inquisitive, creative, and hardworking students that challenge themselves in and outside of the classroom. My students thrive on discovering new things especially through reading. This past school year, they wanted to continue reading groups up until the last day of school, which we did. Their dedication is inspiring and I’m so proud of them!
My students have a rich love for reading. They crave exciting and interesting texts that motivate them to learn more. There are two parts to this project. The first part is setting up the environment by providing a cozy and inviting climate in which students want to go in, get comfortable, and read. In order to do this, I am asking for a soft, durable rug for students to relax and read. I am also in need of sturdy shelving to hold our books. The shelving and the rug will set the tone for our classroom library. The second part is providing them with cross-curricular texts. I am specifically requesting some of the Magic Tree House Fact Tracker nonfiction books along with some of the fiction companion books. I would love to have these books in 6 books sets so I can also use them during reading groups to extend their learning even further. Fourth grade concentrates heavily on US and state history. These texts provide relevant topics for students that can be used independently or in small group reading. This year I will be teaching both Reading and Social Studies, so these will be the perfect texts to join both subjects together and get the most out of their reading.
