My Students

Our elementary school is more than a school; it's a place where everyone is able to focus on every child's needs. My third graders are beyond amazing because they are the future of our society. My students come to school every day ready to learn with smiles on their faces. I love coming to work, and they love coming to school.

My classroom is a place of love.

Most of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch and live in bilingual households. They are outspoken, humorous, and a joy to be around. They're eager to learn new reading and math skills.

My Project

My students will check out books from our class much like a library. They have their favorite options in my very own classroom. I take classroom polls before requesting books in an attempt to select the most popular books for my students to check out and have available. We would very much appreciate optional reading materials in our classroom!

Having extra reading options in my classroom will allow me to encourage a lifelong love of reading for my students!

We need book sets at various readability levels. Often, many of my students' favorite selections are unavailable in the school or public library. In an effort to support my students, I've learned that I must first provide interesting and relatable texts in our own classroom! My goal is to find at least one interesting book for my students to independently read throughout each school year.
