My Students

Do you remember what it was like to fall in love with a new land or be enthralled with rocket ships and robots? My students love to read non-fiction books. We need a way to separate them easily in our kindergarten classroom. A new cart will help us keep our fiction and non-fiction books organized.

My students are absolutely amazing!

They come from poverty level homes. 99% of our students receive free lunch! Yet all are in my class, every day, ready to learn. My students come from very low income families, quite a few are living with 2-3 families in one apartment. Many of the parents are working 2 or more jobs just to survive. Our local food bank delivers backpacks of food to the kids so that they have food for the weekends. During the week, we know every child will have a minimum of 2 meals each day (school breakfast and school lunch). Yet, in spite of these challenges, my students and their families are focused not only on learning but going to college! My students will be the class of 2030! Most days families start knocking on the classroom door an hour before school to work on learning concepts and in the afternoons you will find families in my classroom reading, working, or using the computer with their kindergarten student.

My Project

My students love to learn and at the young age of 5. All are focused on going to college! For most of my students, they will be the first child in their family to even graduate high school. I am requesting 1 leveled library storage cart in order to keep our fiction and non-fiction books separate. My students love to read both but have a hard time finding their favorite types of books when they are all mixed up. Once a child learns to read the fire is lit and the eyes just spark with excitement. It is exciting to hear children read to their families or out loud for the first time!

Although it is simple, this project is HUGE!

The lives of my current 30 students will be greatly impacted by this reading project, but so will their families, their siblings, and my future students. Please help accelerate our reading. As more and more of our families come into the classroom before and after school, I have noticed that parent literacy is beginning to improve. Parents and grandparents have access to simple, non-threatening material and are learning to read along with their child.
