My Students

This is my first year teaching third grade and I love it! I have spent countless hours making my classroom a happy, welcoming, and inclusive classroom for all students. I have worked to make my classroom stand out from the other classrooms at the school. I have a total of 26 students, and 24 in the regular classroom. (Two students are apart of the multiple support program in our school, but are included in various parts of the day). I have tried to make my classroom a place for all students, but there is one area of my classroom I want to make stand out! My Library!

My students are my favorite kids in the world!

They are such a hard working bunch of kiddos. Within my classroom of 26 students, I have such a wide range of reading needs! I have tried to create a classroom library that would meet the needs of my students. I have some students who are not too fond of reading, mostly because it can be challenging for them. I want to help them to develop the same love for reading that I have and that my third grade teacher did for me!

My Project

These resources will provide my students with a more leveled classroom library to help meet the needs of my students and encourage them to find books that are just right for them. I have various students in my classroom who often have a difficult time choosing books in my library that are "just right" for their reading leveling. It can often be discouraging for them, and they will avoid independent reading time since reading can be difficult for them. With a more leveled classroom library, I will be able to offer more reading options to my students and foster a love for reading in my students!
