I am a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school district where my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experiences during the school day.
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
My students are active learners who are always looking for new books to read. Not only will these books be engaging, but they will also help my students develop communication skills and new vocabulary. The sounds and sensory books are a great way to develop these skills throughout our day.
My students have a love for reading.
At a young age, their love for reading can be taken to the next level. We do not receive funding for our classroom. Any donation amount will be a huge help. My students will be forever grateful for their new materials to increase their love for reading and learning.
