My Students

My students just love to read and be read to. It is very important for children to know how to keep their bodies healthy. A wonderful way for children to learn about keeping their bodies healthy, is through children's books that focus on health & wellness, nutrition and fitness.

My students are a classroom full of active, happy, smiling kindergrtners at a public school in a city in northern California.

I have 16 boys and 10 girls. They are all precious and beautiful. They all have the potential to excel in academics and graduate from college and have very successful careers. I am the teacher that needs to give them a strong foundation in language arts, math, science,and physical fitness to make sure their career dreams come true.

My Project

We need books that teach about health & wellness, nutrition, and fitness. The great books that we are requesting are including: Bones,Our Hearts,Our Muscles, Our Skin,Our Stomachs, Healthy Eating:Diet and Nutrition, Breakfast Blast,Chomp and Chew,to a Healthy You!,Eat Green, Dinosaurs Alive and Well!,Food for Feeling Healthy,I Do Not Like Greens!,My Mouth,Our Brains, Germs Make Me Sick!, All About Me!, and Head-to-Toe. We are also requesting a place to read these wonderful books: The Colors of Nature Reading Nook is perfect for young readers! The comfy nook has padded seating & angled backrests covered in wipe-clean vinyl, plus 4 big compartments that hold approximately 75 books. These wonderful books and a this cozy place for the children to read them in, will really insure that the children learn how to take very good care of their bodies, so they will grow up healthy and strong and have very bright futures. I can just see them now sitting all cozy, with smiles, reading contently.

This project is so important because giving them a cozy place to read, and wonderful books that teach about health & wellness,nutrition and fitness, will impact my students by making sure that they learn how to take good care of their bodies,so they can have very bright futures.
