Reading at Home Encourages Life-Long Learning!

My students need durable book bags to encourage reading at home.

My Students

"What are we learning today?" is often heard in our first grade lines as we enter our classrooms each morning. First graders have an endless supply of energy and excitement to learn and are always ready for something new! Our school serves students in K-8 grades, with a large portion receiving free or reduced lunch. We provide a challenging academic program and have earned an A rating for many years! As a Title One school, many of our little ones are facing challenges both at home and in the classroom. As early childhood educators, we strive to create a learning environment that is safe, engaging and fun!

Our first graders are curious about their world and are eager to share what they are learning!

From the minute they walk through the door, learning is the focus and we work hard to build each other's strengths and support each effort to improve! Economic challenges should never be a factor to determine our student's success. Engaging, purposeful materials and learning experiences are the key to providing our students with the tools they need to succeed. We hope to provide each one with a positive experience each day!

My Project

Reading at home is an important key to my first graders success. Having a classroom library and take home book bags encourages students to read at home with their families! In my classroom students are able to borrow classroom books to read at home, but often these bags are lost or misplaced. A special bag to carry their books home will help keep their book safe and value the importance of books.

These book bags will keep our books safe and help my first graders to build responsibility and develop a love for reading.

Building responsibility is so important for a lifetime of learning and success.
