My students need books that will be read in whole group read aloud and during independent reading skills that focus on the PYP learner profiles.
My classroom is filled with thinkers, risk takers, and principled curious students. Some of these students come each day with full stomachs, clean clothing and a healthy snack. Others come to get breakfast at school, wear the same clothes each day and can't afford to bring a snack. Yet, no matter how they enter the school, they all come ready to learn, with smiles on their faces.
The community where my school is located is an amazing one.
The community supports the local school, teachers, and students in any way they can. Our community, however, has one of the highest property taxes in our state while most of the residents are middle-class people. This makes it hard for donations to be made to the classroom. I love the school I work at and feel blessed to have such an amazing class!
Part of being an International Baccalaureate school is that we focus on skills called the learner profile. These are things like being principled, caring, open-minded and a risk taker. A great way to teach some of these learner profiles is through read alouds with the entire class. Having fun, even silly books that the students can enjoy while making connections to the learner profile through the characters and situations in the stories is a way to get the student engaged and see themselves being able to apply the learner profiles to themselves. The students would then be able to read these books during their independent read aloud time.
