My Students

"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." ~Frederick Douglass~

Every day, I welcome 60 first grade minds into my classroom who simply cannot wait to learn to read.

They know that reading unlocks a whole new world of freedom and adventure.

Located in Washington, DC, my students attend a Title I school where 99% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. When my students arrive to 1st grade, many of them are still getting comfortable with books and are reading below grade level. Despite this, I expect that all my students be reading on or above grade level by the end of the school year-and most importantly, my students and I are striving to build our love of reading together. Our school's vision is "a child-centered and diverse learning community that provides each student with the opportunity, resources and foundation to reach his or her full potential, achieve well-rounded citizenship and enjoy multicultural enrichment in a safe, supportive and challenging environment". My students' constant love of learning fosters an environment of adventure, growth and support in my classroom.

My Project

Thanks to the generosity of so many donors, we have begun to build our themed/series section of our classroom library. My students already love the books we have received. I am hoping to open their minds even wider to world of Dr. Seuss by adding a collection of Dr. Seuss books in our library.

Although we dedicate one day-Read Across America Day each year to Dr Seuss, I know my students would absolutely love reading these wonderful books any day of the year.

I want each and every one of my students to have access to the wonderful rhymes and illustrations of Dr. Seuss so I not only added traditional books but also easy readers. I know my students will thoroughly enjoy them!

My students also need new center activities as they continue to grow as readers. These activities are typically printed, laminated and cut by me. Color printing is not available within my school so I am hoping to use this color printer to make these new activities to help engage my students in their fluency, comprehension, writing and word work activities that I put into their centers.
