A Bluebonnet a Day Keeps the Boredom at Bay

Help me give my students Bluebonnet Award Nominated Books to read this year!

My Students

My students are from varied backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, ethnicities, and experiences. I have students from both ends of a wide spectrum of ability, strengths and weaknesses. I strive to offer a variety of activities to engage students of all levels, interests, and abilities. The materials we receive will help me to continue to motivate and invigorate my students' learning.

The students at my school are the best and never cease to surprise me with how hard they work.

I am always proud when I get to tell someone where I work because they know we are the best school, with the best kids!

My Project

Students crave new reading material all year long. These books have been nominated for the 2019-2020 school year to receive the Texas Bluebonnet Award. This list of books offers a variety of topics, reading levels, and interests to captivate any reader. Students will get to vote on their favorite book mid-year to help award the author of the winning book a real award!

When students see that their reading makes a difference, like in awarding this prestigious prize, they are motivated to read and invest in their learning.

Thank you for making reading fresh each year for our students. It makes a huge impact!
