My Students

I am the librarian of an urban public school that serves students grades PK-5, 2 PPCD classrooms for children with disabilities, and an autism unit. This is a neighborhood school that serves 440 children. I work to instill a desire to read. I believe if I can get our students to learn to read for enjoyment that they will become lifelong learners.

Inspiring a love for reading will encourage empathy and caring in their treatment of others and help them become more well-rounded individuals.

Our students need to build social skills, gain knowledge, better their perspective and construct tools to be productive citizens. Our students need to increase their vocabulary and comprehension to be able to effectively communicate. Reading allows children to use their imagination, create a world view and lookout through the eyes of others. It can change and improve their world by helping them manage their anger and make better choices so they become productive members of society.

My Project

All of the items requested, such as the material, cutting fabric, pillow stuffing, threading, measuring tapes, push pins, needles, stencils will be used to enrich the children's lives by allowing them to experience something new.. The materials will be introduce to students the correct way to be used.

Students will be able to create and sew a pillow, blanket by learning to read a pattern and following teacher instructions.

Teacher will use encouragement and praise to ensure students feel successful while attempting to sew their pillows and blanket.

Teacher will ensure students are introduced to sewing, set goals, and have fun learning how to sew.
