Since the COVID-19 pandemic has stopped students from attending school physically. We will be doing full remote learning and passing out learning packets to families on a monthly basis. Students also have limited access to printed books because of limited library resources in our community. This makes tailoring learning for my special education students difficult. During the school closure, the country also saw a lot of racial tension. My students have witnessed riots and protests. I am also asking for books to add to our classroom library, for when we return, to have more representation, as well as to learn more about our election processes. One hundred percent of the students at our school receive free lunch. Many don't have books at home. This project puts books in their hands and lets us continue with some normalcy in learning. Students can share the same book as we do small group pull out groups and help fill the holes of knowledge they need to be successful. Physical books in hands has a higher impact of engagement than paper copies of books. I will no longer have to project stories, that may be difficult for students to see on the tiny screens. It also gives students a chance to look away from their screens, saving their eyes.
