My students need sets of leveled nonfiction books ranging from Kindergarten through 4th grade level.
Which of these would be more enjoyable to you? Reading black-and-white, tattered pages printed off the computer or a brightly colored, illustrated, actual book? When my students choose nonfiction books for our centers time, they need a real book, at their level, to engage and interest them!
I teach a very multicultural classroom.
I have students from Jamaica, Haiti, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Puerto Rico, and of course, the United States! In addition, my students range in ability from Kindergarten level readers to 5th grade readers, although all are 4th graders. In our Title 1, urban school, resources are quite limited. With what little we have, my students have built a classroom of tolerance, caring and motivation for learning.
Our literacy time is the most essential part of the day. My students have made amazing reading growth due to Guided Reading. During Guided Reading time, I sit with a small group (3-6) students and we read books on their reading level. This allows them to develop important fluency and comprehension skills that they would not be able to get in the larger group, where the text may not be on their level. What to do with the rest of the class while I am with 3-6 students? During this time, the other students rotate through "centers". Otherwise known as literacy work stations, students have the opportunity to work in groups, partners, or independently on important literacy skills such as grammar, poetry, idioms and writing. One of my most important, yet most underdeveloped literacy work stations, is the one for nonfiction text. We lack nonfiction books that are short, interesting and most importantly, address a variety of levels so that the students can actually read them!
By contributing to this project, you will allow my students the opportunity to immerse themselves in nonfiction text, the genre that they are most likely to encounter in the real world.
You will provide them with interesting, educational, "real" books- what every child deserves to have in their classroom.
