My Project

Each day I am greeted by 24 enthusiastic third grade learners who come from all over our district. They are a unique group of diverse students whose families originate from all parts of the world. My students bring with them energy and excitement for all things learning and it is quite contagious. This sense of success is essential for my students’ entire academic careers. I will soon be introducing literature circles where they will develop comprehension and vocabulary skills. They will participate in student lead discussions on theme, genre, and even ethics. Students will have the opportunity to choose research topics based on their novels and practice creative skills through illustrations. All they need are the books to read! In addition we also need books for our classroom library which is quite small. They are thirsty for books and many of these books were requested by my students.
