I teach in a Title One school in a highly poverty-stricken area of New York. The students, predominantly Hispanic and Black, are burdened with more responsibilities than can be imagined; yet, they come to school each day and try to learn the lessons in front of them. The students' and their parents' lives are plagued with harsh realities of life and poverty and many times, the task of putting food on the table has to take precedence over school. This hardship can cause a lack of focus and create stress that makes it nearly impossible to harness the students' abilities.
Each day, students will select their own books at their level for independent reading. They will focus on partner reading during parts of the Reading Block, as well. They will share the books with classmates and begin to climb higher in their levels. The topics covered in The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series are something that they can relate to and the sarcasm and wit challenges their thinking. The vocabulary is presented in such a way that they are able to use the context clues to get the meaning more so than if they were reading a passage. The fact is that they love the series and I want to encourage reading in the classroom in any way that I can.
Be the person responsible for placing the books into the hands of the students who need them the most.
Your donation will encourage them to continue reading and learning. They will know that a donor invested money into their education. By donating, you can be that person who gave them the resources to learn.
