My Students

Do you remember getting hooked into a book as a child? My students share that excitement and joy. We use a book in our classroom everyday, whether it is to introduce and new skill in Math, Language Arts, Science, or Social Studies.

My students are book-loving, avid readers, and enthusiastic learners.

We are a diverse school of students that are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative. Books are so important to my students and are truly valued. Our school library is an essential resource for my students. Many of my students do not have access to books at home and rely on our school library to check out high-quality books.

My Project

We are requesting a range of books that will help my students deepen their love of reading. These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy -- I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind -- I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, my students will be able learn about curriculum topics, in ways that relate to them.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.
