As a teacher in our district, we have over 50% of our students at free and reduced price lunch. We also have a very diverse population of students. Our school family is special and we need these items in our classroom to make it even more special!I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
Our school family is unique.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
My classroom is literacy based on all subject areas; which if fantastic because we have a ton of books, but they don't have a home because we are running out of space!
The opportunity to get book shelves and baskets will provide my students with a "professional" looking library that encourages my readers to find books that are appropriate and appealing for their literate minds.
Improving my classroom library with baskets and book shelves will make it easier for students to "shop" for books because their will be more space for them. Plus it will encourage them that the library is a great place to be and visit!
