Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students arrive each day with smiles on their faces, ready to do their best in class. I teach in a K-5 elementary school in an urban school district with over 800 students and a diverse population. All of the students at my school receive free lunch. Our school district has been experiencing financial difficulties for many years. However, we have great students, dedicated teachers, and administrators who work together to make our school a happy and safe environment for everyone.
My students would benefit from new read aloud books for our classroom. Reading aloud to my students provides them with exposure to new concepts and vocabulary. It also provides students of all reading levels with a model of expressive, fluent reading.
Reading aloud picture books helps create a positive classroom community and instills a love of reading for my students.
These books will be a great addition to our classroom. They cover a wide variety of topics that I can incorporate into our class meetings and throughout the day. Reading aloud helps my students feel comfortable talking and sharing with one another. These books will help me share my love of reading with my students.
