Thank you for taking the time to read about myself and my wonderful third graders. I educate young minds in a Title I school in the Bronx, New York. All of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. Our school educates students from pre-kindergarten up to eighth grade. In the heart of New York City, our third grade students push themselves each day to grow their education and character. We are a diverse group of learners from the community. Each student enters our school with different background and experiences. Our classroom welcomes all differences and celebrates each student for the unique person that they are. Third grade is a key year for any elementary student.
In 3rd grade, they are no longer learning to read, but are now reading to learn.
My students are hungry for knowledge. This is the first year they have to take state tests in New York. Any help you can contribute to our classroom will be very much appreciated! In our class, we prepare students to succeed in life, not just on tests. Achieving is believing!
Currently our library needs some TLC. Our students need an organized library with coherency so that it is more accessible. The book bins that we are requesting will definitely help with that. Your donation will help with allowing more students to use the library at a time and expand our book selection. The book baggies will give students a place to put their books and read at their desks. This makes reading possible throughout the day.
Reading is one of the easiest and most fun ways to learn and engage in any course of study.
Our class is an ICT classroom which means that about half of our students are special education and the other half are general education. They love reading about animals, real people, weather and so much more. Our classroom needs more books for our students. We need your help to add literature to the lives of our students in this low income Bronx school. The students are so excited at the idea of getting more bins into our classroom library.
