Help me give my students the chance to read relevant, inspiring books. I want to offer my students books that represent them and inspire them to read, especially when it is a common struggle.
Being in middle school is hard enough, but it becomes even more difficult for students when facing trauma and/or struggling with disabilities. I want to give my students the tools to be successful academically but also to thrive as young adults.
My students are resilient and strong, they have been through serious trauma and they just keep going.
It is my job to create a comfortable and safe place for them.
In our area we have 100% free lunch and almost all kiddos have a low socioeconomic status, which often leads to other issues. In spite of these issues, so many have made self and academic improvements! I want them to continue to become confident in themselves and face adversity.
My project contains books that focus on relevant stories, characters and life events. It also contains interesting stories that my students voted on as a class. Books they want to read.
Students need to want to read to truly be successful.
The class set I would like to read as an entire class is The Ables. This book focuses on what certain students are able to do as opposed to what they are not able to do, and presents it in a non-traditional superhero style.
Other books in my project are for our class library. Again they are books the students voted on. Silent sustained reading occurs in most class periods and will be more successful when students can pick books they actually want to read. It's all about the buy in! Additionally, the treats we are hoping to obtain through this project are incentives. Encouragement comes in all forms....including snacks/nourishment.
I am a resource teacher and the kiddos I work with are in need of extra encouragement and teacher focus. I want to do everything in my power to help them. Our area struggles with obtaining resources and has little to no parent involvement. This project is not just about reading, but about supporting our community.
