I currently teach in a Title I (low-income) elementary school. With 25 students, I have a wide range of abilities and needs. I also have a diverse socio-economic population of students, who come from a variety of home lives.
My students are brilliant, creative, and innovative.
They strive for success in everything that they do.
My students come to school every day with an excitement to learn and love to try new things. They also love any chance they get to collaborate with their peers and spread about the classroom as they dive into their work.
Due to Covid, my students, unfortunately, have lost years in the classroom. Their desire to learn and grow is strong, and I would love to reward them with brand new books.
By granting us these books, we would be able to read in small groups, create book study groups, and build back our love for reading.
These books would allow us to hit the key state standards such as comprehension, characters, settings, and cause/effect. These books would also allow for collaboration with their peers and classmates, while making connections to the real world.
By having a variety of books, students can pick which books they would want to read based on interest. They would be given the freedom to choose while learning and growing as a 4th grader.
