My Students

I currently teach first grade. The students are excited every day to be in school. The students come from low-income households. At school, I want to give them every opportunity to learn and explore. They love that they are learning to add and subtract in math. Also, the students are currently beginning to read! This is very exciting, and they try and read everything they can, from posters to books.

The children and families in our school community are a diverse cross-section of many different cultures, ethnic groups, and languages.

We have English as a second language program. We educate children from 24 different countries who speak 15 different languages. The students speak Bosnian, Spanish, Arabic, Albanian, Russian, Ukrainian, Sudanese, Somalian, Swahili, French, Kirundi, Bantu, Burmese, Vietnamese, Nepali, and Mai-Mai.

My Project

These new picture books will continue to enhance the print-rich library that I strive to create. Our library is a place that students really enjoy coming to! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. Over the years I have watched what books the students are taking out and asking to read. Lately on our Zoom meetings, I have asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them.

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 reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
