My Students

My students are eager, enthusiastic, and passionate about reading. They have very imaginative minds. Sometimes in class discussions during our reading instruction period, we get lost in depth. My students love to ask questions and hold engaging dialogues, especially, when discussing book characters.

My class loves to read, and they even challenge each other.

They get lost in reading, which sometimes means that I have to pull them back into the real world. Sharing is even something we practice in class. When one student is finished reading a good book, they recommend it and lend it to another student.

My Project

These materials will allow my students to flourish tremendously. They will keep them enthusiastic about reading, by providing a comfortable, and inviting area for them to delve into reading. Upgrading, our independent reading area and providing books for my students on all different levels, will give every student a chance to master their reading skills, as well as have an option of interesting book topics to read that best suite them. Having a variety of reading leveled books, will allow all students an opportunity to read independently with great enthusiasm. All of these items will keep the passion for reading.
