Love For Literacy and STEM

Help me give my students the continued love of literacy through books while our library doors are closed.

My Students

My students are determined, and enthusiastic when it comes to hands-on learning. My students and I have a virtual check-in several times a week in Google Meet to go over new material, and to check in with each other. In addition, I am recording video lessons for them to view and continue to learn new material. I am excited by their level of commitment and participation.

My students have exceeded my expectations and I hope to continue to provide them with the rich materials they deserve.

My Project

My amazing students have been working incredibly hard completing the assignments that I have given them through Google Classroom. However, my students would benefit greatly from having a bunch of new literature to kickoff the remaining units.

This project will provide a variety of new literature for students to explore.

I will be able to do a live read-aloud. This will continue to support their love of learning while allowing us to proceed with our projects just like before Covid. I will use these amazing tools to assist my students with their remote learning experiences.

Once we excitedly return to school, students will be able to continue their exploration of these materials. And, I have included some hands-on extensions to our project to provide students with examples of how we can apply these lessons to real life.
