My Students

My students are creative, natural born thinkers and questioners. They don't even know their risk takers, but they are. My students are so diverse. They are different from the languages they speak at home to their skin tone. My students might have come in September not knowing all the letters in their name, but I know that they will sore past grade level expectations because they are achievers, and always want to achieve at the highest. My goal as their teacher is to make love learning now at this young age, so that they are forever learners.

My Project

I love seeing my students read! January is my favorite part of the year because I finally get to asses students and see what reading levels they are on! Students start picking books on their guided reading level and really start understanding how our classroom library works.

I have been using plastic bags for years to keep their independent books in.

I need something more durable for my students this year, next year and years to come. The plastic bags break often but are needed so that students can keep their books on their reading level in one place. Students use these bags to read in during the independent time and in the bags, I include flash cards I make, notebooks for them to practice sentence writing and books they enjoy. This product would help students be able to carry more books, be organized and best of all I can use these book baggies for many years to come!
