I am trying to develop a collection of classic books for my fifth grade students to be able to read at book clubs. I need multiple copies of five books in order to offer book choice to the students. I feel that giving them choice of books with a limited selection will allow them to fully buy-in to the book that they are reading.

Project Goal

I am trying to develop a collection of classic books for my fifth grade students to be able to read at book clubs. I need multiple copies of five books in order to offer book choice to the students. I feel that giving them choice of books with a limited selection will allow them to fully buy-in to the book that they are reading.  

 

How Project Benefits Students

The students will be exposed to some excellent literature that will allow them to explore some important themes in life. I want them to read some of these more classic books in a fun book club set up so that they will enjoy the book while having the opportunity to read with their peers.  

 

Expected Outcome(s)

The students will be able to have conversations about the books that they are reading with their peers. The 24 students that I currently teach along with future classes will benefit from these books. I hope to further their interest in reading by getting them to read these classic books.  

 

Detailed Cost Summary

This is a list of the books that I would like to purchase. I also have address labels listed because I will use these to add questions for the students to answer. The file folders will contain their responses to the questions in one organized place. The Post-It notes will allow students to make notes of their thoughts as they are reading.
