Just like most young teachers, I am always looking for ways to inspire my students to read. I do have plenty of favorites to recommend and share with my students. This December, one of the great classics of Children's Literature will come to the big screen: C.S. Lewis' “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”. In order to encourage my fifth grade students' love of literature and the use of their imaginations, I will have my students read the novel as a class. Some of the main themes include friendship and courage. I hope to use this book to help build community in my class, as well as to provide them with an enjoyable learning experience. After in-depth discussions, literary essays, and perhaps even some skits, the class will take a trip to watch the movie on the big screen. Besides the movie, this novel is part of a series, “The Chronicles of Narnia”. Hopefully, this book will inspire my students to read the others in the series (of which I have one copy). I am asking for 32 copies of the novel "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" so each student I teach will have a copy to read. I am also requesting a copy of the Chronicles of Narnia CD Box Set. These CDs will be used in our classroom listening center, so that students who read on a lower level can also participate and enjoy this worthwhile novel (and the series) with their peers. This is vitally important as over 90% of the students in my school are English Language Learners. Most of my students are reading below grade level, so the chance to hear the words while reading them will be a real benefit. I am confident that this novel by CS Lewis will be of genuine interest to my fifth graders and will help spark a love of reading. I will also allow other teachers to borrow the class set so that your gift will help many more children. Thank you for your help in enriching the literary lives of my students!
