My students are growing up in a high risk area, where most people count them out before they even get started. They live in a neighborhood that is primarily section 8 housing. We are a Title I school, and all of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most students come to school without having any school supplies from home. It is my hope to update our classroom, by providing resources my students do not currently have access to. No donation is to small to make an impact for my students.
My students may not come from the best, but they DESERVE the best!
They are eager young minds wanting to learn all that this world has to offer, and it is my dream to help them achieve that.
These books will help my students enrich their literacy skills as well as continue to enhance the literacy-rich classroom that I strive to create. My students enjoy reading together as a class, and a good book is often hard to pass up! Every book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and my students are thankful for the opportunities to read. We decided to read a book together as a class, then do a comparing/ contrasting project between the book and movie once we finish. This book was chosen with my students in mind, and has sparked the interests of many. Students will be able to enjoy these books, which will help them continue to expand their love of literacy.
With this new book, my students will be able to read something that relates to children their age; and what better way to capture a reader than through something that relates to them and is intriguing!
The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed world.
