Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

I love that my students want to learn and have the desire to do great things. Sometimes having the right book can make all the difference in the world. Seeing greatness in a book can inspire the next generation to push themselves further than they ever thought possible and achieve goals beyond their imagination.

A good book sets the tone for learning, a GREAT book can inspire a generation.

Please help me provide GREAT books for my students that celebrate them as an individual and that display what they can do and be if they put their best efforts into what they want to achieve in life.

Ms. Gentry
Grades 3-5
