My Students

I am a teacher in an amazing low-income bilingual school. My students are faced with several challenges. I want to help my students in as many ways as possible and empower them to share their learning and friendship with peers.

As a primary grade teacher, I know that I need to instill a classroom that is safe emotionally for all of my students.

I know these resources will help them become productive citizens and lifelong learners in our community. Any donation would be a huge help.

My Project

My students (and many of the other lower grade classes at our school) are having trouble socializing and communicating their feelings in appropriate ways. We need to give them the tools to build their vocabulary and awareness as to how to interact with others. When students are confident in their social skills and are emotionally literate, they are more successful in school. This project will provide teachers with lessons to talk about how to function appropriately in a group, how to connect with other students and adults, and how to "read" social situations in order to know what behavior is expected.

The Social Thinking book sets included in this project have proven successful in educating students on appropriate ways to communicate their thoughts and feelings and how to work collaboratively in a group.

The We Thinkers series will be especially helpful for our primary students at our school!
