My Students

My students are fun-loving second graders who love learning and love being in school. My students are avid readers and enjoy reading with their friends. They are all well-behaved and they are very excited about learning. They are kind and caring and help each other any chance they see an opportunity! My students are happy and energetic second graders. Most of my students come from low-income families with various cultural backgrounds and languages. The classroom is where they have the opportunity to have fun and learn at the same time.

As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, I know my students are faced with challenges both in and out of school.

About 5% of the students in my school are homeless and live in shelters across the city. Parents struggle to provide them with the necessities to start the school year. Even with these challenges, my students come eager to learn. They are funny, smart, and active.

My Project

My students love reading and they love reading at home but they need a place to store their books. They have a hard time keeping all of their independent reading books together. They also have a hard time taking their books home in ziploc bags. The ziploc bags would rip over time. These book baggies will keep their books safe so they can be reused from year to year.

The book pouches will be a great storage place for their books.

My students take home books every night and the reading pouches would be great for the traveling back and fourth. This will ensure the books come back tidy and in good condition.
