Ms. Angelique from New York NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Transformative Books for Growing Minds

My students need a set of books for the first couple weeks of school that embody the students they will become in first grade such as empathetic, determined, thoughtful, and unique.

My Students

My students are absolutely amazing in every way. Our class is complete with 25 enthusiastic, curious and animated first graders from a range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our class is an integrated co-teaching (ICT) classroom meaning that a portion of our students have special needs. Our needs range from speech and language disorders to autism but none of the labels stop any of the students from trying their hardest and always exceeding expectations. These 25 students are dedicated and excelling in the classroom is the norm!

Our class of students are a unique, clever, determined and persistent bunch with a range of interests and needs making each and every lesson new and exciting!

My co-teacher and I take a very hands-on approach to education which allows students to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways.

My Project

My students will be entering first grade as eager students determined to learn, make mistakes, and grow. We need books that embody different character qualities and discuss different topics that will come up in the first couple weeks of school. Students are naturally nervous when put in new settings, with new friends and adults. These books will help ease their nerves about it all.

We will delve into the books and learn from their stories and their characters.

It is always helpful for students to use stories to relate to their personal lives. Not only will my students learn valuable lessons but they will be immersed in a world of books and literature and will hopefully learn (starting on day one) the importance and magic within books.
