Goal

This project will provide my fourth graders with access to high quality texts to help deepen their knowledge about the topics we will be studying. [Topics include: Poets, Poetry & Becoming Writers; Animal Adaptations; American Revolution; Ratifying the 19th Amendment & Inequality] 

 

What will be done with my students

Reading a wide variety of texts about a single topic can help increase knowledge, literacy skills, vocabulary development, and student interest/engagement. These books will give my students an opportunity to read additional self-selected texts related to the topics we will be reading and writing about in our English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum.  

 

Benefits to my students

The students in my class this year, and in coming years, will get to enjoy and learn from these books as we study each topic during ELA instruction. With student access to these additional texts, I will be able to go deeper with the content knowledge and help engage and motivate my students.
