Reading During Quarantine!

Help me give my students a book to read while at home during this CoVid19 quarantine.

My Students

CoVid-19 has completely left our classroom empty in an urban city school with 99% of our students in poverty left to figure out ways to continue to learn. Many parents do not have technology or an internet connection. Some families have connections, but their students are having trouble completing assignments and programs online. Many students in my class have IEPs, which makes the learning harder from a distance each day.

Students miss their friends and teachers, but despite all these hardships, they are still eager to learn!

My Project

Your generosity will help my students with the joy of reading while they are stuck at home during this quarantine, since many of my families do not have extra books to read at home. Students will learn a lesson about waiting with Piggie and Elephant. Students will be able to connect with the characters' feelings as they have to wait to get back to school and see their friends again! Waiting is not easy and these books will help to brighten my students' spirits. This book will also help my students to practice reading silently and out loud with their families to improve their reading skills.
