My Students

My students are amazing and an incredibly diverse set of learners. They come to me with a variety of home lives, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Many times they have not eaten breakfast or may not know who they will be going home to at night. They all have one thing in common though. They come to school to be loved and to learn.

There is security and love at school.

Love from their teachers and love from their peers. It is unreal to see the happiness children who have so little can have at school though joyful learning!

My Project

Some students are resistant to practicing their reading. However, as a teacher, I know daily reading is the best way to become proficient. In this project, I am asking for high interest books to engage even the hesitant student! They love dinosaurs and learning about dogs. They love classic characters such as the Gingerbread Man and Cinderella. Curious George books are loved by children big and small are the types of books I am asking for.

High interest texts are critical for learning to love to read!

My first graders would love to have additional high interest texts to choose from each day.
