My students come from predominantly low-income backgrounds. They love hands-on activities and new things being introduced! My students are not the high kids; they are the students who just needed that extra love and push of confidence. They love to learn and love when new things are brought into their environment! We don’t have very many resources in our classroom but work with what we do have. Most of my students don’t get help at home; all learning for those students is done at school with me.
These new books will offer my students the chance to have new engaging books in our classroom library. They have read the books we currently have, and many of the books currently in the class library are slightly above their levels due to being left from the previous year teacher. These new books will give them more options on their grade level as well as new material to actually gain fluency and comprehension on. I want to give my students the chance to experience the journeys reading can take them on. My students love to read and always want new books to read!
