I am a first grade teacher at a wonderful Title I school in the Washington Heights neighborhood in New York City. Ninety six percent of our students are eligible for free lunch, but this does not dampen the spirits of these motivated students. I have worked very hard to make our classroom a bright and happy environment, despite the struggles many of our children face every day.
In first grade, we engage the children in literacy centers that stimulate, enhance and challenge them to practice the literacy skills they need to be successful readers and writers
I have two groups of students, they are learning English and Spanish simultaneously. They all have different assets that make my classroom special. I love that they are willing to learn and they love to have fun while learning.
My students are special in many different ways, their different personalities make my classroom light up, they enjoy reading, writing and playing. They are excited to learn new things and to have new learning adventures.
First Grade is the grade where children learn about the reading and writing process. My students loves to read and write. I need to expose my students to new books that they can read and listen. I will be using this resources as literacy centers where students can explore different books. While I work with a group, six students can work at the listening center to strengthen their reading and listening skills in Spanish.
Having more books in the classroom will have a immense impact on my students and they will develop a bigger love for reading.
My first graders will be able to have more reading options. In addition my students will build the skill of literacy comprehension by reading more books.
These books will help my students to read. Please donate to this project.
I strongly believe that your help will provide my students with a life changing opportunity to have more books available to enhance the literacy skills they need to become better readers.
