My students are beautiful. They are just coming into their own. Just learning what they like and don't like. Reading isn't pushed in many of their homes. So we are combating that at FPES by pushing reading in a multitude of ways.
In my library, they are exploring new and old books.
They are reading online through our MyOn program. We are starting a reading club to help expose them to different genres. They're learning how libraries work i.e. call numbers, Dewey Decimal system, etc.
We even play games to see how well they can alphabetize books. We have a book recommendations board where kids suggest books to their classmates. We are starting an Adopt-A-Shelf program where kids compete each week to have their shelves alphabetized correctly and neatly. We also do a question of the week related to a book or idea we're contemplating in the library. In addition, we do book talks, previews, etc.
Every day, they find something new in the library and give us new ways to change and make this school a better place.
By donating to my cause, you will be helping to give my students an abundance of resources! By having a budget for Teachers Pay Teachers, my students will be able to have a variety of resources for texts and comprehension.
We do not have text books in our district for LA, so the ability to link with other well rounded teachers around the world for resources is amazing.
The more resources a student has available, the more connection he/she will have with that text.
Teachers Pay Teachers not only benefits myself and my 150 students, but the teachers that are posting their lessons and activities for us to share with each other.
