Classroom Library

Help me give my students organizational tools and books to help us build our classroom library.

My Students

As a teacher, I want to provide my students with the best education possible, so that they can be college and career ready. We are an IB school! What does this mean? The IB program encourages students to think broadly, beyond the boundaries of their communities, and to see themselves as members of a global society. These students are sure to be intelligent contributors to society as they travel through life.

Our low-income students deserve equal opportunities and the best education possible!

I love each and every one of my students, so this is why I want to give them the absolute best first year of school (kindergarten). Every day these kindergartners are putting their best foot forward while emerging themselves in their education. They are wiggly 5-6-year-olds filled with excitement for learning. Our Kindergarten classroom is a welcoming place where you will see young students taking action and responsibility for their own learning experience.

My Project

Please help our classroom become more organized ! Having these new organisational supplies will allow us to make the most of our learning space and keep it tidy so that we can focus on learning.

If this project is funded students will be so excited to receive and read new books that focus on social and emotional learning.

These books will teach students about empathy and building and maintaining positive relationships. Social and emotional learning is a huge focus in kindergarten and I would love to set my students up for success by having access to social and emotional books in our classroom library.
