My students are eager to learn, curious, and creative. They work best when they collaborate, learn from each other, and have hands-on experiences. As a teacher, my goal is to create a fun and safe learning environment where they can thrive and feel comfortable.
I am fortunate enough to have such a diverse group of students who, no matter what, come to school eager and ready to learn.
I work at a Title I school where the majority of my students come from low income households. Having such diverse students in the class I've learned that it's important to represent them and celebrate their cultures. Each student brings something different and special to our classroom and I want to make it a point to celebrate them and their interests.
These books will provide my students with multiple options to choose from. They will be able to have books that relate to them and represent them while being able to learn about different cultures and celebrate their own. They will be able to read about scientists and engineers and feel empowered to create things of their own. At our school we take AR quizzes to encourage reading, but unfortunately our classroom library is too small to spark their interests.
In our classroom we celebrate reading and the places we can travel to just by opening a book.
I want to be able to provide my students with an eclectic assortment of books that will engage them and relate to them. We would very much appreciate any new reading materials in our classroom!
