My students are motivated and enthusiastic learners. Our school is a Title I school with very high poverty. Our entire school receives free breakfast and lunch. Although they are surrounded by poverty, they eagerly come to school and work very hard. They know that through education they will be able to better their lives.
My students are great kids who come to school ready to work hard and enjoy learning.
They want to succeed and better themselves.
I want to teach my students diversity and teach them about kindness toward animals and the human race through books.
I want to teach my students about tolerance, compassion, and how important it is in our lives. I hope to teach them that everyone is different and that being different is perfectly fine.
Teaching tolerance through books is a great way for children to learn.
My students need these books so they can have their own copy and follow along while we read. They will read the story which will improve their fluency and we will discuss the story which will improve their comprehension. We will discuss the purpose of the book, and write about various topics, such as, how can you address the character's problem, author's purpose, put yourself in the place of the character etc. I hope to teach them empathy with these stories. I will have the students work in groups, giving them a different prospective in their thinking and feelings about various situations.
Reading stories that students can connect with will make learning fun.
