Mrs. Mead from Kailua HI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need quality picture books that are socially and culturally relevant and meaningful.
Our students love living in Hawaii. They are very family-oriented. Students are active and joyful. As a small school with only one class per grade level, our students have progressed through each grade level with the same group of friends. They continue building strong relationships with one another and they find joy in supporting each other.
More than 3/4 of our students come from low income households.
Our students face many barriers to learning and our goal is to support them in overcoming barriers and taking ownership of their learning.
Quality picture books are a powerful tool in teaching students how to engage with a book and practice what good readers do. We are working towards building conversations that question the text and allow students to connect with the author, purpose, and themes of the text. Quality picture books are those that teachers can use to apply our literacy standards to by deeply engaging students with the social issues within the text.
My students are in need of high-quality picture books that they can connect with, that are socially and culturally relevant, and that elicit engaging collaborative conversations about text and illustrations.
