My Students

My students are nothing short of AMAZING! They inspire me each and everyday to be a better teacher. My students love to read!

They are avid readers and on their way to being lifelong learners.

I try to keep our classroom library stocked up with books that interest and intrigue them.

My students have the opportunity to visit our school library multiple times a week, but I would LOVE to provide them with more opportunities to open a good book.

My Project

These chapter books and diverse reads will help my students see the world from our classroom. It will take them to fictional places they have never been as well as give them a different viewpoint of the world. They will be used during both independent reading as well as whole class read alouds.

I want each of my students to see themselves as characters in our classroom library.

I try very hard to make sure that each of my students know they are loved and have a place in our class. Why shouldn't they feel that way in books too?
