My Students

My students are loving, hardworking, and driven first graders! They all strive to make the best of each day regardless of their academic and personal struggles. My students need extra help in all academic areas and constantly need extra time to truly learn a particular skill. Although they have these challenges, our students work hard to achieve not only in English but in Spanish within our dual language program. Our students live in the city and the majority come from low-income homes and receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our school does not only provide a nurturing environment for our students but a place where they can truly feel successful. All of my students come to school to learn. At times this desire is overpowered by situations they cannot control. We believe in their abilities and want nothing more than to see them achieve these important skills they will use in their daily lives.

My Project

I would love to give my first graders new books that will keep them engaged and allow them to fall in love with reading. Many of our students borrow books to read at home and we are looking to add some books that will have our students fall in love with the books. This project includes popular children books such as the Mo Willems series of Elephant and Piggie and Pigeon. These books are very popular with the kids and we have used the 3 we own daily. This project is full of highly engaging books the kids will love!
