My students are excited to be learning, engaging, and interacting in a pivotal year. They are the sweetest students and they are always wanting to help others. We are a Title I school where 54% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. This doesn't hinder any of my scholars from doing their best!
The JOY of learning RADIATES from these scholars!
"Look at these new books!" my students exclaim every time we add books to our classroom library. We are a community school with a growing English Language Learner population. Our classroom is lucky enough to have students from Haiti, Cuba, and Uzbek. Despite the economic challenges my students face at home, they bring an abundance of joy and energy through our door daily.
Despite the challenge of a high stakes testing grade, my students are always eager to learn, explore, and engage. They thirst for experiences that make them even more engaged. They are loving of each other and are always helping each other strive for excellence. I am blessed with the task to provide this class with creative, active, engaging and quality opportunities.
My students love finding a great new book in our class library. We are continuing to focus on finding diverse books that engage even your most reluctant reader. I'm requesting a variety of books including Rolling Thunder, The Roots of Rap, Bilal Cooks Daal, and many more.
These books will give my students the opportunity to find books with diversity and see themselves represented through the books.
With students from a variety of backgrounds, I want them to find books that they can connect with.
I can't wait to read the next book!! My students exclaim when they find a book that they connect with. The variety of books will encourage even the most hesitant reader. What the third grader wouldn't think Jingle Dancer is a great book. Her Fearless Run will inspire a student to become a runner.
I can't wait to see the look on each student's face when these new treasures arrive.
