My students are bright and eager to learn! They are lucky to attend our school, which is a performing arts magnet school, where they are provided with many creative opportunities and experiences. My students are creative, energetic problem-solvers.
Students at our Title I school come from diverse backgrounds, but they never let their circumstances inhibit their learning.
Over 75% of students receive free breakfast and lunch daily, but our families and community are committed to our student's success. Students are chosen from a magnet lottery system and often have many artistic talents, from acting and singing to drawing, to accompany their academic mindset.
We dedicate at least two hours of our day to focusing all each component of literacy in the classroom! It may seem like a lot of time, but 120 minutes flies by when reading and writing are the focus. Each day we focus on a specific reading skill as a whole group on the carpet, but then students have the opportunity to select a book and work on that skill independently.
I can feel the love of reading growing in my classroom, and a new set of classroom library books would help ensure that that passion keeps growing!
By exposing my students to a variety of different genres, they'll be able to practice the reading skills we're working on with multiple different texts that interest them! This will help prepare them for higher-level learning as well as building the foundation for a lifelong love of reading.
By supporting this project, you would be helping me add over a hundred new books to our classroom library. Students will have access to these books during the school day, but they'll also be check them out over night so they never have to worry about needing reading matierals at home. The books I have chosen cover multiple different reading levels and interests do every student will be able to find numerous books that they'll be able to enjoy.
It's said that the world belongs to those that read and trust me when I say that my classroom of learners deserve the world!
