My Project

Literature is a great way to expand learning and growth about ourselves, our community and the world. Students will use the books in this project while reading in book clubs or small groups.

Students will be placed in groups based on their reading levels and will work together to read, discuss and learn from the books.

These books have main characters from a variety of cultures, ethnicities and countries of origin. Special attention has been made to choose books that represent students in our school population with a focus on the students in third and fourth grade. Your contributions to this project WILL make a difference.

Mrs. Shelton
Grades 3-5
