My Students

Do you remember being young and the first time you could read and understand a book on your own? Count past 100? Do a fun science experiment? My First Graders are fun, loving, and excited about reading and all learning. This is where you fall in love with learning and books and science. Everyday is a new day to grow our mind in a different way.

My students live in a small community.

Our elementary school has only about 140 students in it. It’s a low-income school that has recently been devastated by hurricane Florence. Many lost their homes, belongings, and are just now beginning to get back into a normal routine.

They want to learn with hands-on activities and be engaged in every way. I try to provide as many opportunities as possible for every child in my class to interact with their learning and take charge with what they want to learn about. This is how every lesson will make more of an impact in their mind and stay with them longer. It is especially difficult to get these items funded due to Hurricane Florence and the situations of our families and school district.

My Project

Students don't always have a chance to make reading relevant to real life. A Time magazine subscription would allow students to read real articles that is happening in the world right now. Furthermore, books have to be returned once they are read. If it was a magazine they could take home, they could reread it and reread it as often as they wanted to.

Reading is not just a book in the library.

Reading is everywhere. Reading a sign, the cereal box, a newspaper, a comic, instructions. Students should see the various types of reading there is in the world to help motivate them to see why it's so important to learn to read.

Also, for so many of my students having a magazine that is their very own is special. Reading material they don't need to return or worry about messing it up is special. Some of my students don't have any or much reading material at home to call their own, especially after Hurricane Florence. Magazines they receive every week will be something they can cherish as their own.
