My Students

My students come into my class every day with such enthusiasm for learning, reading and would look forward to their classroom routines. They come from low-income families and experience many hardships, yet they still come to school to do their best and persevere in all they do. All this has changed for them since school closed.

My Project

Receiving these resources would be a game-changer for my students reading books at home. They would actually have books in their hands to read over and over. This would support their love for reading and improve their reading skills which are probably declining from lack of practice. It would bring an incredible experience of routine reading into their lives at home. It will also help their imagination and well-being during this difficult time. I know my students and I know how excited they would feel to receive books at home of their very own.
