Help me give my students some high interest picture books for our Picture Book a Day Challenge like, Malala's Magic Pencil, Shark Lady, and She Persisted, that will help us learn about strong women around the world.
I love my job. Why? Because of the students I get to teach each year. My students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom, just like most kids are today. That's why I love to watch them grow and participate in shaping their future within my classroom walls. I want to be the safe haven where they can challenge themselves and grow their abilities socially, emotionally, and academically.
My students are creative, smart, hard working and full of energy!
They like to problem solve. They love to read. They need to "do" in order to learn.
I may not have control over what life is like outside our classroom, but I can make their time with me memorable, engaging, fun, and purposeful. I hope to inspire my students to keep learning and to work through challenges that they may face.
These books will make such an impact on my students. While 5th graders aren't apt to pick up a picture book as their independent reading book, I want them to know that picture books are GREAT. I have challenged myself, and my kids, to read a picture book a day this year. That's 180 picture books that will engage and excite my students. That's 180 opportunities to make reading fun. That's 180 or more beloved characters that remind my students' of themselves. I want my kids to LOVE reading all things.
With these new books, my students will have access to unique topics and interests.
My hope is that through this challenge we grow as a classroom community to be more knowledgable, more empathetic, and more willing to read "outside the box" of chapter books to find joy.
