My Students

Our school sits in the middle of a small community that once was an industrial town but has fallen on extreme hard times. Our school is made up of students from diverse backgrounds with varied experiences. There are 25 children in my classroom, and our building consists of grades 1-2. This year 100% of the students in our district receive free lunches. They are loving, hard working, and always appreciate the simple things in life. The teachers in my building strive to provide comfortable, loving, educational work areas for every student. We say that our classroom doors aren't just doors that open up into a room, but doors that open to a home full of learning. Our classrooms are our homes.

“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” – Margaret Fuller

My Project

Reading is a skill that requires practice, not just instruction.

The more that you read, the more things you will know, The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss

My students need books that would enable them to apply the skills and strategies that they have learned. My class would love to have Accelerated Readers available to them. The Accelerated Readers draw students into the world of “real” reading. This is a world in which people learn and enjoy reading from books. The purpose of Accelerated Reader is to enable practice of independent reading for each student.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level. They also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to improve reading ability is to read more! Accelerated Reading books will help my students grow stronger in reading.
