Hooray! This project is fully funded
The students in my classroom are energetic and excited to learn new things every day. It is such a good feeling to see the sense of wonder and genuine interest on my students' faces when I am introducing new topics.
My school is a large, public school within the city, serving many different backgrounds, religious beliefs, economic standards, and family dynamics.
We all enter through our classroom door and are part of a great team. The students love sharing what they have learned and what they know with each other as well as family members.
I would like to increase my classroom library include more picture books on science and STEM-related topics and also books that will help my students develop better social skills and cooperative learning techniques while working collaboratively in small groups. Everyone in my class deserves their ideas and opinions to be heard and explored when it comes to working together. Many of these books will explain these social issues and how to create a safe environment so that every child will feel comfortable in sharing their ideas. It is very important to teach these skills early in the primary grades so they develop life-long good habits and value others' opinions.
