My Students

My students are three years old, and this is their first experience in school. They are among the first three year-olds to attend 3K in the NYC school district. They come from a low income/high poverty neighborhood in the South Bronx, and have not been afforded the opportunities that children in more well-to-do neighborhoods are given.

It's my goal to provide a classroom for my students that is welcoming, offers opportunities for exploration, and prepares them for future academic success.

My Project

My students love storytime! It's one of the highlights of their school day. They always ask for "one more book"! They love hearing the same stories over and over, but will definitely enjoy some new choices. Our library is in need of new books so I can offer my students a variety of quality literature to enjoy.

Research shows that children who read for enjoyment perform better academically than those who don't.

Reading helps children develop a broader vocabulary and increases their general knowledge. Adding to our library will offer my students a variety of books to choose from, and the story props will add another level of enjoyment of storytime fun.
