My students are full of curiosity, enthusiasm, creativity, and wonder! They come in every day excited to learn, constantly asking questions and discovering new things about the world around them. They are eager to seek solutions to relevant challenges they face in the 21st century.
Books foster confidence, resilience, and empathy in readers.
The texts students encounter lead to rich conversation, new learning, and deeper community. It is my goal as a third grade teacher to keep my students safe, build caring relationships with them, and help them grow. I want to encourage each child's love for learning and help them become confident, capable, compassionate world citizens.
With these books in our classroom library, students will be able to see themselves reflected in the books they read and be able to learn about people from diverse backgrounds. This will give students both mirrors and windows into the world, enabling them to self-reflect and read about lives different from their own as they discover their place in school and the world.
Books are powerful tools for empowering students and building their confidence as well as encouraging compassion and empathy.
I want my students to have the opportunity to encounter a variety of books during read-aloud and independent reading. Texts such as The Word Collector, We're All Wonders, and Girl Running celebrate and explore diverse people from across history and topics like persistence, friendship, acceptance, poverty, kindness, and more. With these books added to our classroom library, students will be able to grow as readers and as confident and compassionate world citizens!
