My students are an exciting mix of resourcefulness and passion. As part of a Title 1 school, my 5th graders have a knack for making the best of a given situation and creating their own opportunities. Each of them has a plan for the future and hopes to make a positive impact on their community and the world around them.
The resourcefulness and passion of my students is only matched by their yearning for more.
While they may be resourceful, they hope for greater opportunities to ensure their collective ability to help create a better world.
Reading is fundamental. It is built into my district's curriculum as a focus area. Unfortunately, my students do not have the supplies necessary to read . Currently, the students are using Reading A-Z books printed from the website and books that I have acquired since the beginning of the school year. This is not enough. My students have made their collective voice heard and they want more books; especially books that mirror their reading levels. This project is meant to meet this demand.
Providing these books to my classroom will ensure that my kids have a chance to continue existing as a community of readers with books that are engaging and appropriately leveled.
