Non-Fiction Books for K-5

Principal Morris requested a set of K-5 Okapi Non-Fiction books, to be shared by all grade levels.  The books would be available in the book room for teachers to borrow for small groups.  This set, in particular, includes books with complexity and topics appropriate for the upper grades.  The ability of all students to understand complex “expository text” is a requirement of the newly adopted Common Core State Standards for Reading.  The Foundation agreed to pay for this set of books, the latest request to support literacy, in May 2012.
