Ms. Brooks from Houston TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students books that appeal to numerous tastes, including Marvel, Graphic Novels, Sadie, The Odd Sisters, and more.
My students attend a Title I charter school in Houston, Texas where nearly 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Despite facing hardships and adversity, my students are committed to becoming high school ready and college-bound, eager to learn, and always giving one hundred percent.
While our community has experienced so much devastation as a result of Hurricane Harvey (and recently, Tropical Storm Imelda), our students have a determination to succeed.
As a result of their determination to succeed, I am tasked with the responsibility of providing a safe, yet productive, environment. Together, we will build the class community where everyone can grow, is loved, and where mistakes are welcomed, because they help us grow.
Reading is a foundational skill for any subject and/or job anywhere. Therefore, students must work to continually improve their reading fluency and comprehension. In order to do so, they need to have access to a variety of books that meet their differing needs and tastes.
With access to graphic novels, humorous, and Young Adult novels, students will have more of a choice in the types of books that they read.
This leads to their building of confidence with the ability to make appropriate and responsible decisions. Furthermore, when students feel that they have a choice, their engagement increases. These books will allow students to practice their decision-making skills AND build on their reading skills.
