My Students

I love reading and want to share and inspire my 4th graders with highly engaging nonfiction books. I recently was cleaning out my personal classroom library and noticed my nonfiction books were so outdated and falling apart. I believe if I had more authentic high interest texts my students would benefit. I love seeing their faces light up when they see a book that interests them. I would love to stock my library and keep our future generations to love reading.

My Project

With the addition of new nonfiction books from National Geographic in our classroom library my students will be able to choose from a variety of high interest books. My students will love reading these colorful engaging books time and time again. Also, they will be able to choose books that interest them and provide them with wonderful illustrations and photographs.

The best way to instill the love of reading in children is to excite them with topics that interest them.

Once you get them reading they will continue to grow into life long readers. This project will help enrich my students educational experience.
