My Students

My students are third graders in East Harlem developing a love for reading. We have done exciting things like video chat our favorite author, Adam Rubin. To keep the momentum up, we are trying to bring engaging and exciting means of literacy to our school. My students have dealt with a lot of challenges and deserve opportunities and excitement in the classroom so that they have a strong educational foundation on which the build future successes. Thank you for your help!

My Project

My students need books so that they can grow as readers and learners. I am teaching a class of third graders that love reading about mysteries and fictional characters, but our classroom library has neither. We want to provide our students with books that can teach them about the world, deep lessons, and meaningful circumstances to help them develop into strong human beings. We are looking for books of all genres, and all levels to meet the diverse population in our ICT classroom. We are working towards better reading habits and the best way to do this is with interesting and exciting NEW books!
