My students are surrounded by high poverty, yet strive to achieve academic goals and competitiveness. They are very strong in history and culture. Most of my students do not have access to computers, internet connections, or communications in many of their homes. We are a 100% free breakfast and lunch school.
Our school is rural with extensive student needs.
These students who come from humble beginnings can do extraordinary things as the opportunity arises. My students want to learn current skills to better prepare themselves for the future. Our school is ethnically and academically diverse. Every student has an equal opportunity to learn and grow through any all types of activities and opportunities.
My class has a few books of variety. Many are old and not part of the reading credit program. This project will help me build a larger more current book collection for all my reading levels. There are so little classroom library options and this project will help to achieve a better one.
These books will allow my diverse students to better develop their creative thinking and open a new world of imagination.
Each book selected is connected to history or standards for my grade band. My library needs an upgrade and building of books that will truly promote literacy and that love of adventure through imagination!
