6th Grade Genre Collection
School: Beacon Tree Elementary
I am the English Language Artís 6th grade teacher at Beacon Tree Elementary in Utica Community Schools. The students in all four class have an opportunity to read novels as a group and find themselves enjoying the love of reading. I have class set novels for all of the students to use as they rotate to my classroom. However, I do not have as many books for students to choose as they find a personal reading fit. I like expanding the opportunity of reading by including a daily SURF (student uninterrupted reading fun) time into our day. This is an opportunity to allow students to experience self-discovery though reading a book of their genre choice. I would use the grant to purchase books leveled for 5-7th graders and bins to organize multiple types of genre books. Thank you.
