We Can Read About The Real World!
My students need small sets of nonfiction reading materials to read in small groups, partners, as a whole class, and independently to support our STEM focus and grade level standards.
Did you have books at home? Did you go to the public library? Many students do not have these opportunities. Our reading textbook is mostly fictional stories. Students need to learn how to read nonfiction to prepare them for success in school and future careers.
My twenty-nine inquisitive third graders attend a school with great diversity ethnically and economically.
Almost half of our students are in poverty. Many parents work multiple jobs to try to provide a better life for their children. We are in our second year of transforming into a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) focus school. Our parents, community, and staff are excited about this opportunity for the children.
My students need small sets of nonfiction reading materials. The nonfiction books will support my integrated STEM units and literacy instruction. Books will be used for whole class instruction, small group reading instruction, partner reading practice and independent reading practice. These books coordinate with our English/language arts, science, engineering, and social science standards. Students will learn how to read text components like diagrams, headings, and captions. This will give students the skills to be successful in the classroom, provide exposure to potential STEM career areas, and develop interest in the world around us.
Students need support and materials to learn to read nonfiction.
Additionally, the book sets will be shared with two other classes that are working on the same integrated units. We are trying to develop the future problem solvers for our area and country. My goal is for all students to have equitable access to materials, education, and career opportunities.
