My Students

Our school is close to two military bases and many of my students are the children of deployed military personnel. The school they attend is an older, urban public school in the largest city in the largest state in the United States.

All of my students are eligible for free breakfast and lunch but we are not a Title I school that means that my wonderful first graders have all of the needs and few of the resources that are available to other low income children.

My first graders are struggling to learn the basics---math, reading and science. Nearly half of them receive services for ESL, Special Education and Indian Education (JOM). Most of my class are below grade-level but they love being in school because they love learning. Their smiles melt my heart.

My Project

My students attend school in one of the most diverse school districts in America. They come from diverse backgrounds and need to learn about and celebrate different cultures. I am asking for thirteen picture books including I'm Like You, You're Like Me: A Book About Understanding and Appreciating Each Other; Salamat Po!: Learning About Showing Respect In The Filipino Culture; and All Are Welcome. I plan to read and discuss each of the books after recess each day. Then the books will be placed in our classroom library so children can take the books home to share with their families. I am also requesting a chromebook so we can research cultures, take electronic field trips and research the different countries.

The recent earthquake in our area has limited our budget for classroom materials and my first graders desperately need the resources from this project to have an introduction to the world's diversity.

With the help of donors, my students will be able to learn about different countries and explore respective cultures, languages, foods, and geography. We will also focus on acceptance and appreciation of everyone’s diverse backgrounds.
