Reading Together Globally

Help me give my students a variety of books that celebrate cultural awareness and diversity while developing empathy by learning about point of view, teaching different perspectives, and actively practicing listening to others from around the world.

My Students

My students and I are excited about learning this year! They are a diverse group of learners that build each other up every day. I believe they are all SMART, SPECIAL, and SOMEBODY. I want them to feel that in our room and believe it too! My students are simply the best and our school is one amazing place to learn and grow! My students are eager to learn as they enter school each day. They are tiny sponges ready to soak up mounds of information given to them. My students love STEM time, responding to literature, working collaboratively, and exploring new learning goals! I am hoping to keep them engaged this school year by providing authentic, creative, and meaningful learning experiences.

All of my students have the desire to learn, and my goal is to help them achieve excellence in learning by providing an environment that is positive and addresses my learners' needs.

I also strive to ensure that all students are provided with a rigorous and personalized education that will prepare them to be lifelong learners and contributing members in a global society.

My Project

I am proud that my class will be participating in a project called the Global Read Aloud! Our class as well as other teachers and students from around the world will be reading the same books such as Alma, Fry Bread, La Princesa and the Pea, Swashby and the La Madre Goose (and many more) as read alouds. My class will correspond and use technology to connect with other first grade classrooms from all over our country and around our world!

My students and I are excited to learn more about other cultures in a meaningful way.

This opportunity that I am providing my students will help them facilitate their reading connections and conversations while listening to fantastic read alouds and connecting with other first graders from around the world!
