My Students

My students come from a low-socioeconomic area with a high population of English Language Learning students. All of my students qualify for free lunch and some families come from 3 generations of poverty. A lot of my students are behind in background knowledge, vocabulary and phonological skills that are necessary for learning to read. For some of my students, school is where they get their best meals and where they feel safe and secure.

Despite these many difficulties, my students still come to school everyday and do their best!

In our classroom we know that mistakes help us grow and that determination is key in overcoming any challenges. They are learning to be self aware of their learning. By knowing their strengths and weaknesses, they are able to make incredible growth in all academic areas. I am so proud of my students and their hard work and determination!

My Project

First grade is a crucial year for learning how to read. We spend lots of time reading together as a class and working on our phonological and phonics skills. Its important, however, to not only teach them the skills to read, but also to teach them to love reading as well.

Your donation will help me to encourage a love of reading by creating a cozy and comfy place for my students to curl up with a good book.

Students love having the opportunity to choose where they will read to them self and they get really excited when they have access to something comfortable and different. Not all of my students have access to a comfortable, quiet place to read at home and I believe these chairs will spark excitement in them and help them to feel safe and relaxed so they can build their love of reading.
