Our students come from a variety of economic and cultural backgrounds. Our students' families face many challenges (i.e., shelter, food, clothing, etc.). We are a low-income school in North Carolina.
My mission is to provide a comfortable, safe environment where students have all the resources they need to be academically successful.
Our students have limited resources and academic opportunities. They have very few opportunities to explore new worlds, so we try to visit as many places as we can through books.
Students can make connections to their world through literature. My students absolutely love reading, but we have very few class sets of books. We have access to some books, but in many cases they're old and damaged. Reading is so important, not only for academics, but for personal growth.
"Practicing the reading process as a class only creates better independent readers and thinkers."
We have already read many short stories this year, but my students would love to read a novel! I am requesting a class set of books to help keep students engaged. My goal is to help my students develop a love for reading in 7th grade, so they will read more, increasing their vocabulary and knowledge. I am purchasing a class set of novels so every child can have a book in his/her hand to read, discuss, and enjoy.
