My students need high quality literature to foster a love of reading!
Every day the second-grade scholars at our school can be heard chanting and stepping from down the hall as they celebrate their African American identity and their academic achievements. Many of these boys strongly connect to stepping, as it has been a positive outlet for them, because it empowers them to create a strong and powerful culture. Every time these boys step, they forget the hardships of living in North Minneapolis and are empowered to be the best they can be, and celebrate not only their culture, but their learning as well.
"I put my B in front of me E whoooo (lean back) my S in front of my T ahhh it looks so good on me, you wish you could be me ahh uhh!
1, 2, 3, (stomping) I put my B in front of my E whooo my S in front of T. (pause) Pause for the picture and don't you forget we are the BEST boys college-bound, too legit to quit, ahoooo."
My students need current, high-quality literature in the classroom, to foster a love of reading. Right now, students only have access to used books that have been donated to the school. Although these donations are greatly appreciated, the boys in my class would greatly benefit from current high-quality literature.
Students thrive in an environment where they feel invited and cared for.
With your help, students can feel valued with exciting literature for their daily read aloud. With high-quality literature in the classroom, students will be able to see their themselves represented in classroom literature, while also improving their reading fluency, by being read to on a daily basis.
