We Need Non-Fiction!

My students need non-fiction books by two of our favorite authors, Nic Bishop and Gail Gibbons!

My Students

Help us learn! We love to learn about real things and need non fiction books in our classroom that we can get our hands on every day!

My students are curious investigators who love to learn!

We learn to read a variety of books in first grade, and non fiction is very important in our classroom! My students attend one of six elementary schools in our district and 90% of our students come from low-income backgrounds.

My Project

I am requesting non-fiction texts by two of our favorite authors, Nic Bishop and Gail Gibbons. The new Common Core State Standards emphasizes learning through non fiction texts, and we need books to help us with this! These books will be exciting and informative to my first grade students.

Having a great collection of non fiction books for children to explore in the classroom every day is extremely important.

It is their classroom and they need to know there are materials that will help them learn.
