I am a newer teacher going into my first year of teaching First Grade. I LOVE Early Childhood and had the rare opportunity to loop with my kindergarteners from last year. I also became an Inclusion teacher. As a result my classroom library needs to expand in both breadth and depth and it needs to add more nonfiction materials. Additionally, I have students in my class reading already at 4th grade levels and therefore need to provide extended materials for these voracious readers as well.

This is a lovable story which moral I believe would strongly resonate with my students. Teaching in a Title 1 school, often our students feel sad when they do not have the "best" or "newest" of everything and the story of Cordoroy tells the tale of a bear who has misplaced his button on his overalls. He can't seem to find it and searches high and low for a replacement for his button as he feels like his is "missing out" without it. At the end Cordoroy finds a friend that loves him just hey way he is (missing buttons and all). I hope to instill this feeling of self love and worth to all the students in our classroom and school. Even though they might not have the best life circumstances, they are loved (missing buttons and all). We look forward to adding this inspiring book to our collection.

These children are full of energy, excited to learn, and are a diverse group of English Language Learners/English as Second Language Learners, and IEP students. Our full day Kindergarten class is at a Title 1 school. Our school is located in a poorer urban area of the state, with families underemployed with high unemployment and therefore high in poverty. The student population is 85% Hispanic, 7% African American, 3% Caucasian, and 2% Asian.
All students receive free breakfast and lunch. My students face challenges in their daily lives that many of us could not imagine, yet they come to school with positive attitudes and are eager to learn.
