My students need books that reflect the world around us and book bins for their space in the library.
I teach 23 amazing five year olds. They are constantly questioning, learning and discovering. They know that kindergarten is their first introduction to the world of school, and they can't wait to learn as much as possible.
Many of my students speak a language other than English and we use their language knowledge to build a community of diverse learners.
I want to provide them with every opportunity to experience the world. They are the future and we need to ensure they are prepared to take on anything that comes their way.
I teach beyond tolerance. I encourage my students to learn as much as possible about everything they can. Books allow us to dive into worlds unknown, they open doors to countries we will never visit, and they teach us that there is more than just outside our windows.
Who we are as individuals is part of who we have become as educators.
We have consciously or subconsciously weaved our biases and experiences into the classroom. As we reflect on our practices, we need to identify who we are, and how our core values impact our students.
"If we don’t give children books that are literary mirrors as well as windows to the whole world of possibility, if these books don’t give them the opportunity to see outside themselves, then how can we expect them to grow into adults who connect in meaningful ways to a global community, to people who might look or live differently than they. You cannot." -Kwame Alexander
