My Students

My school is a Title 1 school filled with talented educators who care deeply about children. Children are truly amazing, and each day I learn something new from my students. This year my room is filled with 27 students who are curious, energetic, and motivated to learn. Our days are packed with reading, writing, math, social studies and science. My students deserve materials that will encourage high engagement and increase their love for learning. Each year I do everything in my power to show students that our classroom is a safe place where everyone is important. We take pride in learning about respect, kindness, empathy, and compassion among other things. If my students learn one thing from me this year, I hope it is to always be kind.

My Project

Read alouds are extremely important, no matter the age. Books are so powerful and can teach young students tough concepts. With everything going on around us, I believe it is essential to empower students to be kind, embrace their differences, and understand empathy.

Through read alouds, I am able to use powerful picture books to teach these concepts.

As a classroom teacher, it is my civic duty to have books readily available to help students understand themselves and the world around them. My students love books, and being read to. The books chosen for this project promote these important values that need to be modeled for children. When we talk about kindness, empathy, acceptance, and being different we often refer to picture books to help us understand what these big ideas mean to explain and describe our feelings.

With these books, I will be able to continue to help students continue grow to be kind and caring while embracing their differences, knowing they can make a difference in the world.
