Help me give my students Nonfiction Literature books that match our units to improve the depth of their academic vocabulary.
I have an amazing group of students from Southeast Rochester. We celebrate being a diverse group, from many family make-ups and rich culture differences. My 10-11-year-olds in my classroom are maturing into middle school students, and they are passionate learners. They learn best with hands-on projects and by collaborating with their peers.
Ben Franklin is a neighborhood Title 1 school in one of the best places to live, Rochester, MN, home of the Mayo Clinic.
We have over 600 students in our neighborhood school. Our school community includes 300 students from a "school-within-a-school" Montessori structure. Our school also hosts district programs, such as severe/profound developmentally delayed students, emotional/behavioral disabled students, and early childhood students. Most of them join in our school-wide events.
Our classroom community meets regularly as mentors to younger students, joins forces with the Montessori and other 5th grade classes to collaborate on Social Studies and Science curriculum, and helps develop the school news broadcast regularly. We are active participants in the Ben Franklin Community, where our actions speak our school mission statement, "We are a community where we all learn and grow every day."
Research says that students who live in poverty are exposed to a fraction of the words as their affluent classmates hear. The achievement gap has broadened long before the children reach my 5th-grade classroom. By the end of the school year, I need to increase each child's vocabulary three-fold.
Teachers in poverty schools need resources to build the learners' academic vocabulary!
Help me build my resources to teach vocabulary (common core standard 5.4) through nonfiction literature so my learners can catch up! These resources will be used to teach through small group instruction, based on the individual academic level of each child.
