My students walk into the classroom every day with smiles on their faces no matter what happened at home the night before. They are eager to greet each other and get their day started.
I want my students to be able to have high-quality teachers with the addition of high-quality materials.
I teach in a Title I school in Indiana where 70% of the population lives at or below the poverty line. 30% of the students are transient, for a multitude of reasons. The students are desperate to learn and have proved themselves by their hard work. I want to expand the students' existing knowledge and give them more resources than they realize are available.
After reading these books and using the center activity, my students will feel pride in their own culture and appreciate others! All of these books allow students to devleop empathy and see other cultures for what they are worth. Many of our students have not been exposed to experiences outside of our small city. I hope to bring cultures to life through books texts while teaching about customs. With a mixture of fiction and non-fiction texts, the students will be able to grow more competent in social studies material but also through literature and story telling! Please consider donation to make this possible!
