My Students

My school is Title I and located in a small North Carolina town. It has a diverse population in which the majority of the students are economically disadvantaged. Almost half of my students are also learning English as their second language. My students are full of enthusiasm about learning but often come to school without the necessary tools. As their teacher, I want to provide them with all of the resources they need in order to learn and be successful.

My Project

What could be more exciting for children than to illustrate and write their very own story books? In order for my students to do so, they need to have the necessary materials. For them to be able to publish their own books, they need paper where they can write their stories and illustrate their pictures. They need cardstock to use as the book's cover and a long reach stapler to put it all together. The laminator will be used to help protect and preserve the cover. After the books are published, they will be able to take them home to share with their families and friends. Just imagine how proud they will be to share their very own creations!
