This school year, my classroom consists of 22 incredible first graders who come in every single morning excited about learning, and can’t wait to see what is in store for them that day. I have about half of my class in person, and about half of my class at-home learning. We are able to connect as a class through Google Meets a few times a day. The students in my school district come from a very diverse variety of backgrounds and cultures. Of my 22 students, I have four English Language Learners in my classroom as well as eight students who receive special education services. Our classroom is a community where students respect each other and the materials and resources in the classroom.
I want to ensure that my students who are learning at home and in person, have the right materials to be successful this school year, and every school year in the future.
During the school year, many of my students mention that they do not have enough supplies at home, so I want to make sure that I am able to set my students up for success, regardless of where they are receiving their education.
These materials would be incredibly important to my students' learning. We are exploring new curriculums as a first grade team, but there is just one issue... we do not have any of the books that align with the curriculum!
While our students are in school and at home, it is vitally important that we are providing them with the highest quality education that we can, and that will start with these new books.
These new books align to reading and writing curriculums. As students read and listen to these stories, they will begin to see themselves as readers, authors, and illustrators! These books will help to spark and continue my students' passion for reading and writing.
