My students come from poverty-stricken homes and most don't know how good it feels to succeed. My classroom is a first-grade classroom in New York. A lot of my students come from broken homes or live with other relatives because their parents have made wrong choices in their lives. All of my students are visual learners and my school doesn't have the resources that the teachers need; and technology is one of these resources. I have 4 ENL students in my room that need more support. I want to ensure that I am doing everything I can to help them succeed. I can't tell you how many times I have looked over and seen the tears of my students because they are frustrated. They have it in them to be great learners, and it is my responsibility to make this happen. It's time to make a change and show them their potential.
My classroom library needs quality books for my beginner readers. My students that are reading level A or B need books that spark their interest. It's so important to show them how great reading can be, and in order to do this they need books they love. These leveled books will make them feel successful which will make them try even harder. The excitement on their faces when they are able to use strategies and read a book makes me so proud. My classroom library only has a few choices for levels A and B. These new titles will really bring such excitement and success!
