My Students

My school has a very high population of free and reduced-price​ lunch as well as a high ESL population. I teach 18 third grade students, most of them come from Spanish speaking homes with few books at home.

My students are eager for knowledge.

No matter what topic we are studying, they want to know more. They comb through the library to find books on the science or social studies topics of the moment.

Most of my students use the school or classroom library for reading material. And are limited by the books available to them.

My Project

Often my students have more questions about a science or social studies topic that we are covering in class. They look at​ books. They do not know that they are already starting to do research. They just think that they are reading something that interests them.

By providing additional books on a variety of topics, I will be able to encourage my students to dig deeper into topics.

My students want to know more, and I want to be able to give them lots of options. My students will choose nonfiction over fiction if given the chance. Help me add additional nonfiction texts to our classroom library. My students would be so excited!
