"Teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning." As I enter my twentieth year of teaching, I continue to follow this mantra in my classroom. I teach twenty-eight, wonderful students who come from poverty. My students are from varying ethnic backgrounds. Most of them come from homes that are struggling financially.
My students are extremely motivated and they are genuinely respectful of each other.
They are lovers of learning and I am truly grateful to be their teacher this year. They come to school with smiles on their faces and they are eager to learn. We need new books to use in our literacy centers.
My first grade students are aspiring readers. They love having books read to them. Recently, I have been reading fairy tales to them at story time. They love them! I now want the students to hear other versions of popular fairy tales. The book Goldilocks Rocks is told from the point of view of Baby Bear. These books will keep my students engaged and encourage them to read. Most importantly, they will make my students laugh. They are funny and enjoyable.
These books will provide a fresh perspective on well-known fairy tales.
These books will be a great addition to our classroom library.
