My Students

Our room is a place full of discovery and learning. My classroom consists of 18 fun and loving students who have a joy for reading. They are excited to discover more mysteries and story plots in literature. My students are filled with a love for learning and reading. They enjoy reading and learning about different authors. They also enjoy dancing and singing. They take pride in their independent reading skills and strive on the topics they read throughout the year.

My Project

I would love to incorporate more books about diversity in my classroom. It is a great way to introduce my students to people from all over the world and also gives them the opportunity to explore the world in the comfort of our own classroom. It is so important to make sure our students are exposed to different ethnicity and cultures. Bringing these books into my classroom will make it more fun and interesting. The world is full of beauty and the best way to bring that beauty and information into the classroom is by reading books to expose our students to different cultures.
