My Students

I teach fourth grade at a Title One school in Michigan. My students are always so excited to learn new things. My goal is to provide them with multiple ways to learn and show their learning. This year, my students have a wide range of abilities and instructional needs. I need ways to help best reach them as learners.

My students are a fantastic group of kids who enjoy learning.

I am on a mission to pass on my love of learning to my students. My classroom is a safe haven for them. I want to provide as many fun and engaging learning opportunities for them as well as having a comforting environment.

My Project

My students are avid readers. They are constantly looking for new books that interest them. I have a lot of kids who love specific series or genres of books. Unfortunately, I don't have all the books that my students want or are just right books for them.

My goal is that my students become lifelong readers.

I want them to love reading as much as I do. This project has many books that I know will never stay in our library. Students won't want to put them down!

Our library is lacking books that my students are truly wanting to read. My students have been begging me for my mystery books. I have selected several different mystery series. My students love getting captivated by series. Some of the books selected will be used for read aloud. My fourth graders love listening to a good book. I know these books will be ones that they won't want to stop reading.
