My Students

Students in my classroom work daily on developing character, and we have a code of kindness, integrity, and curiosity. Some came into our learning environment loving books, reading and were innately creative and compassionate. Other students are in the process of developing these characteristics. No matter where we are in our journey, we believe in celebrating what everyone brings to our classroom and what we can learn from each other and books.

Daily, we strive to create a culture of enthusiastic reading and use reading as a reward.

We do book talks, book dating, book selfies, and book sales pitches. Books are so important to our classroom as our schedule does not permit us to use the elementary library and many of our students do not have access to books at home. Our classroom library is an essential resource for students to have access to high-quality and high-interest books. For students who master concepts early, we reward them by allowing them to self-select a book that interests them

My Project

This is the second phase of a literacy center we are building and this is the original writeup on it: These library sets, bookcases, and chairs are the basic core components upon which we will build our classroom library. Our classroom library is both a place of learning enrichment and a reward for completing assignments. All books are treated with respect, love, and care because we know that they are a shared resource for the entire community to use. These titles have been selected because they provide a range of interests, abilities, and genres. Our goal is to have every student become a lover of books.

These new books will allow our students to choose books that interest them and encourage them to read independently.

All students should have the option to read at their level and have books that will help them reach the next level. The best way to create young readers is to give them a choice in books and encouragement to explore the world in print form. We read together, but self-selecting books in a critical step in helping students develop a reading identity. These books will allow them to do that.
