Help me give my students a book to take home for summer vacation.
I teach Academic Intervention Services to students in our rural elementary school in upstate New York. Our school has a student population of 350 students in grades K-5 and many qualify for reading intervention services daily. These students are at risk of not meeting grade-level expectations are recommended to receive Academic Intervention Services.
My students come from diverse backgrounds, with a large percentage of economically disadvantaged students.
Many of the students at our school qualify for free and reduced lunch, health and mental health services through community partnerships, and our school's weekly backpack program which includes food for students and their family. A percentage of our students and families also struggle to maintain housing and are considered homeless within our district.
My students are eager, young, innovative, and compassionate learners who work hard on a daily basis. Our students are both sympathetic and empathetic to classmates creating a safe and loving learning environment.
My project not only provides students with an end of the year gift to add to their home library, but also encourages a partnership between home and school, creating a literacy rich environment. The home school connection is crucial for students and families that are unable to provide books at home due to hardships.
Our homeless population does not have books at home to read.
Our school community is responsible for providing books for those students in order to foster a love of reading.
My kindergarten and first grade students will be gifted an end of the year book to add to their home library, share with their family, and continue to develop a love of reading during the summer break.
