Mrs. Kimble from Bridgeton NJ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let’S Recognize Diversity in Our Multi- Cultural Classrooms!

Help me give my students the books that reflect the multi-cultural and diverse backgrounds of the students who are in our classroom and school. They need to understand that they are one of many!

My Students

I co-teach in a 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts inclusion classroom where many challenges are met and learning is fun. We are a Title I school, and all of our students enjoy breakfast, lunch, and healthy snacks!

We have a great group of young teens who want to love learning along with their peers.

There are no differences in our lessons until we examine their reading levels. The General Education teacher and I are always searching for new ways to engage our children in the love of learning and in each of their classes. I move with our kids from class to class to ensure their success. By having “special” help areas in each classroom all students will know that there is a place where they will be encouraged to ask questions and figure out problems without embarrassment and fear of failure.

My Project

My students are in a Title I School with a majority of students who are either at the poverty level or below. Books are a way to show them that they do belong. Reading with students is a highlight of my day because I like making books come alive for them. They will find that they too can make their books come alive by putting on plays, writing or drawing book reports, maps, music, field trips, etc, My students deserve to know they are a part of the histories they are reading about. They can read and celebrate their cultures and diversities that make us who we are!
