Ms. Redmon from Louisville KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kids Feeling Good in Their Skin! Books on Emotions/Diversity

Help me give my students a class set of books that promote diversity and promote positive relationships in the classroom. These books also help students learn to manage emotions.

My Students

I work in a low income, at risk, inner-city school in one of the most violent neighborhoods of our city. Our preschool students are considered "at risk", and come from low income homes. What makes our kids special are gains no matter how big or small they make throughout the school year whether it comes to behavior or academics in the classroom. I love that we are the first ones besides students parents to mold young scholars minds and that they come from all walks of life!

My Project

I have found that building positive relationships inside and outside of the classroom with families creates the most successful school year. These positive relationships can be created through communications with families and nurturing students and making them feel welcome in the classroom.

Another aspect of creating a successful school year is creating clear and consistent rules and routines and having students learn strategies to manage their emotions and knowing it's okay to make mistakes (being comfortable in their own skin!).

I want to use these books to teach social-emotional skills and support the behavior management system that I am using in the classroom. These books support students making positive choices in the classroom and give them examples of how to make the right choices in the classroom.
