What Are We Reading Next? - Ms. Z's 5th Grade Students

My students need three class sets of engaging, read aloud, books.

My Students

There are two types of students: students that come to school to learn and students that come to school to be loved, and then they will love to learn. My students fall into the later group, and loved and respected they are!

I teach 27 rambunctious fifth graders that enjoy coming to school and being introduced to new content and experiences.

Our favorite part of the day is our "morning routine." Part of that routine is reading a classroom read aloud. Students are engaged when they have a book of their own to follow along with. I love as we are getting to the end of a book and students begin asking, "what are we reading next?!" This is a huge statement for my students.

I teach at a Title I school in Kentucky where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most of the students in my classroom receive weekly food bags that help feed them throughout the weekend and over school breaks. The school I am at has a diverse group of students 38% White, 39% Black, 10% Hispanic, 2% Asian, 10% other. Please help fund my students, and in-turn help fund my school.

My Project

My class has completed several books, provided by the school, but we are running low on options. I am requesting the funding of three class sets of books: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, A Wrinkle in Time, and Wonder. In the future, I would love to request a class set of Harry Potter.

Reading engaging books will encourage students to continue reading for fun past the fifth grade, which will help them to succeed throughout middle and high school.

After winter break, my class has completed three read alouds. One of the books was "Shiloh." It was a tough book to get students engaged to in the beginning, but after Shiloh became part of Marty's family, Shiloh became part of their's. During a reading lesson, we were discussing how your perspective can change. One student raised their hand and said, "my perspective has changed about Shiloh. I love it!" That's the moment I knew that my students loved our read alouds.
