My Students

My young students and their families are doing their best to learn from home. While our school was able to get devices to most students, many only have the 7 short books I was able to send home with them before schools were closed.

My Project

In Kindergarten, our favorite part of each day is settling into our spots on the carpet for a read aloud. This school year, Mo Willems characters in his Elephant and Piggie made us laugh the hardest, taught us important lessons in both life and grammar, and served as some of the most engaging texts in my classroom.

During Distance Learning, most of my students only have access to the few books I was able to give them before schools were closed.

Receiving a set of 5 books would make my students happy, engaged, and excited to read, even if they cannot do it with their peers.
