Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, schools in Texas will remain closed this school year. As you can imagine no teacher ever anticipated not having a proper farewell with their students. We will not end the school year celebrating all of our hard work which brings many mixed emotions to my students and myself.
Our district has transitioned to online learning.
Students will continue to learn remotely from home. Our district is aware of the students we serve, therefore, students and families in need of a laptop were able to borrow one from the district.
My first grade students are avid readers! It has been mind blowing how many reading levels they grew this school year and don't get me started on their love for Mo Willems books, specifically Piggie and Gerald books. My kiddos absolutely LOVE Piggie and Gerald books! Anytime I read them a new Piggie and Gerald book they would squeal with excitement.
My students will be beyond thrilled to receive this big volume book during this uncertain time.
This book contains 5 books in 1 big book! I can already picture their little faces filled with excitement knowing they will have 5 books with their favorite characters, Piggie and Gerald.
Currently, many of my students have little to no access to books at home. We left school for Spring Break not knowing we would not be returning due to Covid-19, which means they weren't given the opportunity to take library books home. Sadly, this also means most of my students may not even be reading while at home. This breaks my teacher heart because my kiddos worked so hard to achieve their reading levels. But being able to gift them each a big book will once again give them the opportunity to read for enjoyment while at home.
