Resources to Learn
School: Marie C. Graham Elementary
As a fifth-grade teacher at Graham, I am building upon the reading instruction that my peers have instilled in my upcoming class(es). My job as their teacher is to also prepare them for the future at the middle school. The purpose of the grant would be giving me the ability to do just that - to provide my students with diverse and authentic literature for independent interest, small group novel studies, as well as whole group instruction. These students need to be exposed to diverse cultures and topics, as well as multiple types of genres, lengths, and types of texts. If awarded this grant, I would be purchasing novels, picture books, and possibly technology to enhance instruction, model, and dive into the different types of media.
