My students need books for character development to teach them how to be a kind person.
I teach reading in small groups to children, who are right now, not making standards in the Bronx. I teach in a high poverty neighborhood. Many students, and their families, are new to the country. My students face many obstacles and challenges each day coming to school. Many are living in a homeless shelter, in foster care, or in a crowded apartment with their relatives. This does not stop my students' enthusiasm for learning and coming to school. My students love reading.
In today’s day and age it is very hard to be a kid. Children can be very mean to one another. Many times they just do not know how to socialize with one another or they get very frustrated when something is hard or challenging. I am asking for a Building Empathy Hardcover Library and twenty books to teach SEL concepts.
The books that I have chosen were selected as model lessons to teach character development and emotional intelligence.
Many people assume children should know how to behave and act toward one another. What I am realizing now as a seasoned educator is that children need to be taught how to get along with one another.
