I teach some of the most amazing students ever! I teach children ages 4-7 with disabilities. Some of these disabilities are speech impairment, lack of fine and gross motor skills, autism, intellectual disabled, ADHD, other health impairments, etc. My students do not come from the best homes but they have great support systems that make sure they come to school every day and learn. Despite their difficulties and challenges, every day is always an adventure; whether it be talking about the weather, social-emotional skills, a bug that flew into the room, playing with playdough, making healthy snacks, or singing and dancing - we always have fun. These children contribute so much joy and love to the classroom and I need to make sure I foster their joy and love by providing them an effective and productive classroom.
For the past two years, it has been difficult trying to provide my students a library in my classroom with old, torn, age-inappropriate, and hand-me-down books. I want to provide my students a library with books that are age-appropriate that will nurture their minds into creative and critical thinkers. These materials, like shelves and tables, will help me add on and create a new library in my classroom for my students. This library will give students full access to new and different books in a comfortable reading area in the classroom. They can sit in chairs or lay on the carpet while they read. They will have many opportunities to handle a book correctly and read one of their favorite books either to themselves, to a friend, or to a teacher. Most importantly, they will be able to let their minds grow.
