Goal

The goal of this grant is to provide my students with engaging texts that will inspire them in science, reading, and writing.  

 

What will be done with my students

Seymour Simon is an incredible informational text author. My students in the past and present are always mesmerized by Seymour Simons texts. We will use these texts to support our science standards as our 5th grade students take the SSA(Science Standards Assessment.) Also, as a language arts teacher, I reference Seymour Simon's books as an model writer when helping my students write informational essays.  

 

Benefits to my students

Having these texts as a part of my classroom library will benefit my students because they will have access to exemplar informational texts that will help them become better writers. Also, the science enthusiasts in my classroom will love having a variety of high quality literature, on a variety of topics, at their fingertips. 

 

Describe the Students

My students astound me everyday. I taught 5th grade last year, and decided to departmentalize. They are amazing young ladies and gentleman, and they DESPERATELY want to make learning gains and to be successful but because most of them are English language learners and/or socioeconomically challenged, they often struggle to make the necessary gains needed each school year.

My school draws from a very low-income community, and due to the financial status of the area and the student population, all students receive free lunch! My school is very lucky to receive Title I funding and corporate donations, and my students are so grateful. High Point is a positive, beautiful, safe environment for children to learn in and I know that our students would be so appreciative of these materials!
