My Students

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 90% of our students receiving free lunch. They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical".

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are at the school.

I want to purchase a book for all students. We will have READ ACROSS AMERICA! I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence. I want all students to walk away from our school with literacy-rich books on that day. I hope that we can be successful so all homes will have books to take home that day.

My Project

The book is going to kick off our Read Across America Day. Also, this book tells about a character that loves everything about books, even the way books smell. We are trying to make reading fun and spark their love of reading. Reading and writing is very important to students' learning in the classroom. I want all teachers to have copies of the book to read in the classroom that day. We are also inviting business members, college students, community members, and high school students to come out to read to the classes. We want this day to be filled with books for all students. I would love for each child to take a book home on that day.
