Our students are fantastic! They come from a variety of backgrounds which makes the classroom a very diverse environment. The school is in an urban setting where we have many ELL students. There are over 700 preK-6th grade students at our school. Many of them do not have access to healthy meals, therefore the school runs a food pantry for students to take food home over the weekend.
These students want to do well, but many lack the tools needed in order to succeed.
We need a whole class set of the book, Tuck Everlasting for Reader's Workshop. Each student needs a copy to follow along and to also use for completing reading work. Having their own copy, students are also able to work with the text at their own pace.
I have two classes of over 20 students each, so these books will get used a ton; we need to have enough copies for a class so they can last as long as possible.
Choosing books that I know my students will love is the easy part; it's being able to buy them all that is the challenge!
