Our school's motto is, "We will accept nothing but the best at NES!" My students strive to give me their best efforts, despite the challenges they may face both in and out of the classroom.
No matter what hardships my students are enduring, whether it pertains to home life or academic obstacles, they come eager to learn and are excited for what's to come within my classroom walls.
They are excited to explore a variety of topics where they can develop strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are imperative for college and career readiness.
The I Survived Series is a group of texts that many of my students enjoy reading. These three particular titles, I Survived: The Joplin Tornado, 2011, I Survived: The Shark Attacks of 1916, and I Survived: The Attack of the Grizzlies, 1967, coincide with our science curriculum.
My students need engaging texts that allow them to make literary connections to what they will be learning throughout their science class.
These three texts will help increase my students' understanding of a disastrous weather condition and the effects it has on those it encounters, as well as explain the environmental adaptations animals need for survival. These texts will not only reinforce the curriculum, but they will also help improve literacy skills.
