Read and Create to Grow this Summer

Help me give my students books and supplies for summer reading and creating!

My Students

Our students are eager learners in a Montessori classroom where they can widen and explore their interests. They have access to rich materials and books to learn from. Many students are beginning readers, making great strides in their reading this year. We were scattered to our homes and our learning materials were replaced by paper and screens.

Students struggled to participate in this electronic world.

Many could not participate at all because there is not a working computer at home, or the available computer is shared by many family members, including parents and siblings.

My Project

Please help me encourage my young students to stay engaged in their learning this summer. As young learners in first and second grades, many are emerging readers who need to read over the summer months to make critical progress in their reading skills. We lost over two months in the classroom, so engagement through the summer is more important than ever.

Humor, art, nature and history motivate my students!

These books and art supplies are both fun and educational and were carefully selected to appeal to the interests and abilities of my students. Nature coloring books, animal joke books, readers, early chapter books, biographies, colored pencils and much more--awesome supplies for some awesome students.
