My Students

My students are second graders in an urban, 100% low-income school. Due to their home lives these students do not have access to books and have not had the opportunity of listening to or reading quality books. Each day I see the many challenges my students face at home and in school. They struggle to treat others kindly and respectful due to them having to "fight" for everything they have. At times they are asked to leave everything they own and move to another home or location. Therefore, I want my students to know that kindness and respect are choices we make in spite of our circumstances.

This year I have chosen my classroom to be a classroom of kindness and respect.

I want my students to learn what a classroom that exhibits kindness and respect looks and feels like. I want my students to have excellent examples of what kindness looks like in the books they read.

My Project

The donations to this project will give my students opportunities to read about excellent examples of kindness and respect which will impact them for the rest of their lives. The books that I am requesting for my students already have a "job". In other words, I know exactly how they will be implemented in our classroom. The books will be used to teach lessons on kindness and respect. The books will also be used for self-selected homework reading. These books will impact my students for the rest of their lives by giving them practical examples of what kindness and respect look and feel like. I want my students to know that kindness and respect are choices we make in spite of our circumstances.
