My Students

Low-income. Homeless. High poverty. These are words that people often use to describe our scholars. However, the words people should concentrate on are high achievers, determined learners, and creative thinkers.

We are scholars who have a hunger to learn, a passion for knowledge, and a need to succeed.

We are looking to expand our critical-thinking skills, explore our creativity, and develop our talents for twenty-first-century learning. We are looking to develop our gifts and talents and need your help to do so.

My Project

High-interest books related to topics that scholars love help to engage them in the reading process. Scholars love to read Amulet, Ivy and Bean, Judy Moody and more. We know we can make reading time more successful and interesting by getting more books kids love in the classroom.

We are looking to enhance our library with books the scholars indicated they wanted to read.

We spent time voting and deciding what books we liked and scholars wrote why they liked them.

Most of the books selected are meant to help kids find a love of reading by keeping them interested in high-interest topics.

Ms. Johnson
Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
