I teach in a school that calls itself "the greatest school on Earth" because we believe that. What makes our school so great are the students in our classrooms. They come from various backgrounds and neighborhoods surrounding our school area. My students are the reason I love coming to work and I want to do something for them!
My students are all learning to become leaders themselves and positive role models for our school.
We are learning to be proactive and be in charge of ourselves in the classroom. There are twenty-six leaders growing in this room and I am excited to see what they will achieve this year. These students all have desire and smarts to reach to the sky!
Students need quality books put into their hands and heard read aloud, in order to become more critical thinkers and curious learners. Books with colorful illustrations and powerful messages can help our kids better understand their power as readers and their impact in a classroom, a school, and their community.
All of these books were carefully chosen because of their words, illustrations and underlying messages that will build students up and empower them to think about their own learning and growth. These books all provide opportunities to discuss important topics about ourselves - the positive, amazing things that make us all an essential part of this classroom.
These books will be used along with our "Leader in Me" leadership discussions.
The books will be a jumping off point for us to talk about leadership, kindness and positive thinking in our classroom community. Books are an interactive and entertaining way to talk about different issues or important qualities that we want to have in our world around us.
