My students need diverse books in our classroom library with characters who represent them.
Our school is an economically disadvantaged and high-need school, but that doesn't stop my first graders from coming to school each day with a big smile and positive attitude! My classroom is a warm, inviting, and safe space for my six-year-olds to enjoy their learning and their friends!
My class usually consists of students with learning and emotional disabilities, EL students, immigrant and refugee students, gifted students, SPED students, and students who have experienced trauma.
My students all have different needs, but love working, playing, and learning together!
Reading out loud to my first grade students is always the best part of they day! My students are always engaged and love to laugh, smile, talk, and think deeply about the stories they hear. Reading out loud helps my students to build empathy and think critically about a variety literacy concepts. Most importantly, we read for enjoyment and to build a love of reading.
All kids deserve to see themselves in the books they are reading.
The books I have chosen are high-quality texts with diverse main characters. My hope is to represent all of the students in my classroom so they see themselves reflected in literature. These books will be read out loud to students and then put in our classroom library for my students to read all year long!
