Ms. Rath from Carrboro NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books for Mindful and Kind Readers!

My students need new books as my goal for this school year is to encourage mindfulness and equity in our classroom. It is easy to use words like kind and fair but books help make connections!

My Students

This year I am in charge of instruction for two classroom sets of students, as we have decided to try a new approach in learning this school year, with a co-teaching model. I am blessed to have students coming from many diverse cultures and backgrounds within our classroom. There will be a focus on 40 students as opposed to an average of 17 each school year. I hope for students to have exciting learning experiences that help them grow as individuals in my classroom.

My Project

I will use new reading materials to address topics like kindness, equity and fairness in the classroom setting.

My goal is to setup a classroom environment encouraging all of these things by giving concrete examples and making connections to childrens lives.

We talk a lot about these words through the year but I would really like to have updated books that connect with what students are already thinking about and how they can use these books to apply them to their everyday lives. I try to build rapport with my students every year and this will be one more step in that direction!
