With the advent of scripted curricula, my students lack access to truly engaging literature. While we read a set story each week, this does little to build reading stamina and a love for reading at the upper elementary level. What strikes me most about my students is that few can name their favorite book because all they are exposed to are weekly stories in an anthology (mere excerpts from books). In my classroom, I would like to set aside time for shared reading using class sets of literature. In this proposal, I am requesting class sets of "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes" and "The Chocolate Touch". Students will have the ability to follow characters, setting, and plot over several weeks and truly delve into the richness of the text. Not only are these two titles engaging, but they also fit with our district-adopted literacy curriculum. I am a fourth grade teacher in a Title I school with a majority of English Language Learners. At our school, 100% of our students receive free lunch. I truly believe that a project like this will build reading proficiency and assist in language acquisition. We need 2 sets of 36 books each so that each of my classes of roughly 33-36 students can participate. Through this project, I hope students will finally be able to name that one special, favorite book.
