Ms. Abrams from S Glens Falls NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students popular holiday books to read at home with their family!
I teach Academic Intervention Services to students in our rural elementary school in upstate New York. Our school has a student population of 350 students in grades K-5 and many qualify for reading intervention services daily. These students are at risk of not meeting grade-level expectations are recommended to receive Academic Intervention Services.
My students come from diverse backgrounds, with a large percentage of economically disadvantaged students.
Many of the students at our school qualify for free and reduced lunch, health and mental health services through community partnerships, and our school's weekly backpack program which includes food for students and their family. A percentage of our students and families also struggle to maintain housing and are considered homeless within our district.
My students are eager, young, innovative, and compassionate learners who work hard on a daily basis. Our students are both sympathetic and empathetic to classmates creating a safe and loving learning environment.
My project not only provides students with a holiday gift to add to their home library, but also encourages a partnership between home and school, creating a literacy rich environment. The home school connection is crucial for students and families that are unable to provide holiday treats due to hardships. Our homeless population does not have books at home to read at home. Our school community organizes a holiday celebration for students in grades K-5 who would otherwise not have anything on Christmas morning.
My students will be gifted with a holiday book to add to their home library, share with their parents, and continue to develop a love of reading during the holiday break.
