My Students

My students are a super lively and happy bunch. They absolutely love to learn. Most of my learners have not been out of their small community.

Learning at home has been a difficult challenge for most of my learners.

Most of my students do not have technology or resources like books, crayons, and manipulatives to help them learn.

My Project

My learners are exceptional and they have a thirst for reading that is unimaginable. Before Covid19 the most cherished part of our classroom is what they are missing at home "the library!" My learners do not have access to a library or even books at home.

Books open the door to developing literacy and growing the vocabulary for early childhood learners.

Every early childhood learner should have books that are reflective of who they are. I hope to provide my learners with an impact of reading that lasts a lifetime. Cardstock and Markers will help my little learners write and create their own stories.
