My students need multicultural books to see themselves in literature as well as have a window into others' perspectives and experiences. In addition, we need storage containers for our math manipulatives and art materials.
My students come to school every day with hardships, pain, and more weight on their shoulders that an average child should. They rely on school to be the most consistent and stable part of their day. We provide them with much more than breakfast and lunch. We provide support, love, a solid education, and invite these students and their families to become a part of our community.
My students have come from all around the world, from many different and often difficult situations.
Despite this, I believe that each one of them can succeed and be successful if given the opportunity. Please help me help them and give them the key to success through a quality education.
Children need to see themselves represented in literature as well as have a window into other children's experiences and perspectives. These books will help them do just that. In addition, we have many math manipulatives, but I want them organized and accessible for students to use at any given point so the storage container will be of great use.
This year responsibility for their own learning will be a major theme in 5th grade.
I want students to take ownership over their academics and learn that they need to seek out any help or resources necessary for them to achieve. Since I have 35 students I can't possibly be with every student at every moment so I hope with these materials, students will take the initiative and become more sufficient learners.
