This year I am transitioning to a Title I school with students of varying abilities. They are second graders who are working hard and coming back to the classroom for the first time since kindergarten. After working hard from home this past year I want our classroom to be as inviting and comforting as possible.
For my students, I would like them to come back to our school and enjoy our classroom by giving them comfortable places to learn from.
While I have yet to meet these students, it is clear that they deserve the best education possible, and a classroom that feels like home.
We are almost halfway through this crazy school year! As we head into the second half of the year and into the upcoming summer months, I wanted to create this project to raise money to buy my students books to read over the summer. Often our students don't have the chance to get their own books and I created this project so that every student of mine gets the chance to have a good book to read this summer.
Every summer students deserve the chance to get lost in a good book.
Whether it be on the beach, at home during a rainy day, or to just escape during the hot days. Please help our students and consider donating to allow each student the opportunity to take home a book or two for the summer.
