Read All About It

Help me give my students books to help with social emotional learning while learning from afar.

My Students

My students who will benefit from this project are PreK-5th grade students living and working in a community with the highest Covid-19 positive rate in the county. Students are staying positive and checking in despite learning in these challenging times.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds.

I have a large ENL population; they are eager to learn and enjoy every minute of it. My students are general and special education students. They are all amazing kids!

My Project

Having these books will allow me to better target specific social skills that all students need in order to become better learners in the classroom, better friends everywhere, and better people in the community. Social and emotional skills are something that children need in order to cope with various situations they may be presented with. These books will be read aloud in our Google meets.

Each Google Meet a new skill and book will be used to teach students different life skills.

Especially with distance learning,I need to ensure that my students are successful not only in their academics, but in their personal lives too.
