Books, Books, Books!

Help me give my students supplemental books to support our literacy standards and learning.

My Students

Within the walls of my classroom, we try to create a warm, inviting, and safe place for students. Our school is a Title I school. Many of our students will not have the same opportunities outside of the classroom as others. When creating a learning environment, I strive to think outside the box to meet my students’ needs. Many of them come from low socioeconomic backgrounds and cannot provide their own materials.

In order to have a successful learning environment, we first need the tools to create an atmosphere for our students to reach their maximum potential.

A majority of students lack the materials to be successful, but none of them lack the enthusiasm to reach new goals. I hope to provide the instruction and motivation my students need to push through every challenge they face because every student deserves the chance to accomplish their dreams.

My Project

My students need supplemental books to compliment the read alouds we use to teach ELA. We often learn about unknown topics to them and they become very interested in these new topics.

My students would love the chance to explore new texts about these same topics.

In my project I have included different sources to support the same ideas we learn about. In centers I try to find different activities to support the learning we have done in the previous week. These books would be a great addition to the centers they use. They would be able to learn even more than they already have.
