Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

My project will be used to build a classroom library . I want my students to experience and explore as many books as they want. Our classroom library will stimulate their imagination and expand their understanding of the world. It will help them develop language and listening skills, as well as prepare them to understand the written word. This, I believe, will motivate the students to want to read, thus helping them to become fluent readers. Knowledge is power and, through books, we can enrich the minds of young children.
