My Students

As a first year teacher, I am teaching at a Title I, low income school. My students are very hardworking and love hands on activities, they are also English language learners. Learning and obtaining the information looks different for each individual due to their level of English proficiency, however they love to read or be read to, write, and creative activities.

My Project

These books will give students inspiration to continue to read during summer break at home. The books that I am requesting are books full of adventure and imagination.

With these new books, it will enhance their creative thinking and still stay on grade level, if not above, during the summer.

The other resources requested, such as the pencils and crayons, will be used along with their books to enhance writing skills, fine motor skills, as well as reading.

I can assure that these books will be appreciated and such a great gift to the students for summer. The books are a vacation in themselves!
