Mrs. Lozano from Madison WI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students diverse books for our classroom that represent them and help them grow empathy, compassion, and respect for other people in the United States and around the world!
My classroom is filled with first graders who are excited to be at school every day and learn more about the world! My students are most engaged by beautifully illustrated, engaging books and hands on experiences. My students come to school ready to experience hands on learning and spread kindness. They come from all over the world, speak many languages, and are excited to share what they know with their classmates. I strive to provide exciting, inclusive, and culturally responsive learning opportunities for my students.
I teach a diverse group of students who are curious to learn more about the world and people around them. I want to surround them with beautiful, diverse, and engaging books that represent the world around us. These books will be mirrors students can see themselves represented in, as well as windows to see into another person's world. This project will help my class grow their empathy and compassion for people they have not met, or circumstances they have not experienced.
This project will provide my class with 27 new books that represent diverse kids and adults from around the world.
There are books about welcoming newcomers in our classroom, wearing the clothes you are comfortable in, loving the skin you're in, and about kids all over the world! There is truly a book in this project for every child due to the wide range of subjects. I know my students would read these books repeatedly and have deep conversations surrounding the topics in them. Thank you for helping bring these great books into my classroom!
