My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "Who is the smartest first grade class in the whole world?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.
I teach at a school with a wide range of diversity including social, racial, and economic.
Despite the challenges, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They have a desire to attend school because they want to learn all they can in order to be successful.
Many of them come from hard-working, but low-income families. Many of our students come from homes where books are not readily available or accessible either because of income level or because a different language is spoken at home. Regardless of background, each of my students loves reading and looks forward to opportunities to be read to by the teacher, to read independently during our private reading time, and to read with their friends.
This collection of non-fiction books will be used during private reading time in our Reader's Workshop and Science class.
With these texts, students will have the opportunity to learn about the world around them and teach others in our class what they have learned.
Students already have the desire to learn about non-fiction and science topics - all they need are the resources!
Support my students' natural curiosity and help them improve as readers and lifelong learners!
