Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students come to school every day full of life and eager to learn. I teach a third grade inclusion class where there are many different learning styles and individual student needs. My students are energetic and have a love for learning despite the many hardships they face daily. They often view school as their escape from the real world and it would be amazing to create a fun and safe learning environment for them that truly meets their needs. They will be so grateful for your donations and support.
Part of school is having students learning math, reading, and writing. Another huge part of school is teaching children how to handle situations with friends and peers.
The books chosen help students foster that growth.
They have students take a look at situations and see how the characters in that book handled it. The books teach children that its okay to make mistakes. They also go over empathy and how to step into someone else shoes to see how they feel. The pillow allows a space for students to go and select these books. A lot of my students like to read when they need a break. The pillow will allow for a calming space to allow them to read and engage in the text and learn about different social-emotional texts.
