My Students

Working in a Title 1 school gives me a chance to inspire and encourage students to love learning. More then 90% of the students in my school district come from poverty situations, and receive 100% free breakfast/lunch. When I see the look of excitement on my students faces when they are shown the endless possibilities of what they can learn, it makes me want to provide them with exposure to all types of learning! They may not have high expectations when they first come to school, but throughout the year they are shown the endless possibilities for their future!

My Project

My students need books, like Dogman & Captain Underpants, which are interesting and keep them engaged in their reading material. Everyday students have approximately 30 minutes of independent reading, where they can sit anywhere in the classroom comfortably and read their favorite book. Also, if students finish their work early they will have a few minutes to read at their desk.

By having their favorite authors and genre available to them, it will allow students to engage in more purposeful reading within the classroom.

The more that my students are reading, the better their vocabulary becomes and that will help all aspects of their learning.
