My students enjoy coming to school. We are a school family. My students are polite and well mannered. They help each other to succeed. Nearly all of my students come from low income households. No matter what challenges they face at home, they know they are in a safe, loving school environment. With our school and county library being closed, my students don't have access to books to read while they are at home due to the coronavirus. Most don't have access to books online as well. During the school year, second graders are required to read daily for 30 minutes.
My students love to read!
During regular school, students are encouraged to take books home from our classroom library to read and return. Students choose books to read independently at their reading level.
Dr. Seuss said it best, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Help my students go places even if they are at home! If my students were in school, they would have access to books to read at home at their reading level from my classroom library. Since we are not in school, most of my students don't have access to books. Having books funded in my Resilient Readers project would mean I could give my students good books to read at home. The books would be theirs to keep and share with siblings.
