My students need diverse fiction and non-fiction books to read independently, in partnerships and in reading teams.
Lifelong learners are cultivated through participation in engaging activities that promote curiosity and provide pathways to successful academic experiences. My students' minds are ready for the challenge of learning a new language and reading books that will allow them to grow exponentially!
Help us continue to bring the love of learning back to our classroom!
My students are determined to excel, and work hard to strengthen both their English skills and their comprehension of grade level material. My students are super curious and love to learn. Many are new to the country and most are learning English as their second language. Our school is located in one of the five boroughs of New York City. Our families may struggle financially, but the students' enthusiasm and desire to acquire new knowledge makes that obstacle one we can easily tackle! Many of our parents work super hard, often with more than one job, yet their greatest wish is for an amazing education for their child. It is for this reason that they support our learning the best they can. My students are determined to get the best out of their educational experience!
My students will benefit tremendously from this diverse collection of books through their use in partnerships, small group discussion teams and when exploring literature independently. I have requested title like, Born to Be a Butterfly,
BBones, A Dollar for Penny, A Lesson for Martin Luther King Jr., and My New Boy.
Books have such an indescribable impact on young learners, allowing them to acquire new skills while figuratively escaping to faraway destinations. Exposure to vividly powerful vocabulary and unique content is priceless. My students will voraciously explore books, developing a pure love of reading that promotes motivation and academic success. Their language acquisition skills will be continually strengthened through discussions and the power of self-guided and team learning. With these resources, the options are truly limitless!
