Help me give my students high interest non-fiction books like Who Was Dr. Seuss? and Who Was Walt Disney?. The Who Was? series tells the incredible stories of trailblazers, legends, innovators, and creators.
My students are inspiring little humans that blow me out of the water everyday with their positivity and commitment to their education. These students live in a community that has seen lots of drug overdoses, parent deaths, and poverty. When these angels come to school, they come to learn, despite what they might be going through at home. They embody what it means to be mentally strong.
Witnessing the joy from these 6th graders as they have personal academic successes for the first time is thrilling as a teacher.
My students have come from all around the world, from many different and often difficult situations. 44.2% of the students in our school receive free or reduced lunch, which is higher than the state average and have high financial needs. They hold the American Dream, but need the tools to make them successful.
Reading is fun! And titles like Who Was Dr. Seuss?, Who Was Abraham Lincoln?, and Who Was Walt Disney? are books that students will love to pick up and enjoy. This year, the 6th grade teachers at my middle school are challenging students to read 30 books of varying genres. We are committed to giving a daily opportunity to simply enjoy reading.
Principled practices has shown that having books available to students in the classroom is one of the best ways to encourage and foster that love of reading.
6th grade is looking to add these non-fiction titles to give our students additional opportunities to access these texts in our classrooms.
