Around the World in First Grade!

My students need picture books that show vivid and exciting pictures of iconic places around the world.

I teach in a high need community with some of the best kids in the world. My school is one of the smaller schools in the district with about two teachers at every grade level.

Due to our small size, we are unable to receive as much funding as a larger school. So, like teachers everywhere else, we try to do the best we can to meet the needs of each of our students.

Have you ever seen the pyramids in Mexico? Have you seen the grassy fields in Ireland? Have you visited the ruins in Rome? Do you ever think about how those experiences changed your life or altered your thinking? I have been very lucky to have traveled many places in the world and now I would like to give my students a taste of that important experience. My goal next year is to teach my students about the various nations. Because we cannot afford trips around the world, the next best thing is to travel through books. I have selected many books that highlight various sights and facts about numerous countries and continents.

With your help, my students can travel the world. These books will give them an opportunity to see the world. They can visit the ruins in Rome. They can climb the pyramids in Mexico. They can feel the grassy fields in Ireland. Your donation, however small or large will without a doubt change the lives of my students. Having your help will make my job a little easier. I am lucky enough to see these children grow in various ways day by day. With your help you will play a role in the mental and emotional growth of a child.
