Mrs. Gentile from Odenton MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students books focused on diversity and those who have made a difference.
I will be teaching a group of 3rd-grade students who are absolutely wonderful! Our school is rapidly growing and has a very diverse population from all economic backgrounds. We have many students who speak two languages and many students who have a parent in the military. We are located between two major cities and have a transient population. Many of our students also receive free or reduced-price lunch. Most of my students come to school eager to learn every day and are a great group of kids!
I am asking for a variety of books about different cultures. My current classroom library has very little diversity in the topics and people in the stories. My classroom is very diverse and I want my students to be given a chance to read stories about characters who are similar to them - and very different.
These books will be used for independent reading and read alouds.
I hope by incorporating them into my classroom my students will learn about different cultures and how people of all backgrounds have had a difference in out country. It is important that everyone is exposed to cultures that are unlike their own.
