My Students

My school is a Title I school, with most of my students living in poverty. My students are loving and hardworking, yet unfortunately, they face many challenges both in and out of the classroom. I'm inspired by my students as they show great perseverance no matter the challenges they face. They come to school ready to take in the day's educational adventures. Because most of my students come from low-income families, the majority of the items (ranging from basic school supplies to books to facial tissues and more) are supplied by me.

Many of my students have never been to a structured environment setting before, so I'm excited to provide them with the most fun and warm learning environment that I can.

My Project

My students LOVE listening to books during our circle time. My grade uses themes to teach reading. Using themes, students are able to learn about a variety of topics throughout the school year. During our read aloud, they are exposed to a variety of stories and texts from community helpers to penguins to Dr. Seuss to life cycles. Books are an amazing way to keep students engaged and interested in learning. Therefore I am requesting several academic resource books for my library. Normally I would borrow books from other Kindergarten teachers, but I'm having to teach from home and I don't have that luxury. I would love to give my students a wide variety of books they will enjoy listening to on the daily!

The books requested will also help my students practice and deepen their knowledge of the academic standards that must be mastered by the end of Kindergarten.

All of the books that have been chosen are of high interest and engagement. Each book goes along with our weekly themes! My students will be excited to listen to them and soon begin reading them! I am expecting to see improvement in comprehension with the addition of these books to our classroom library. These books will help my students, girls and boys, become interested in STEM activities, such as science, math, and building activities we will work on throughout the school year. Your donation will benefit not just the eighteen students in my class this year, but all of my students in the future as well. I appreciate your consideration in donating to my requests!
