My Students

I teach 20 students in a small city in the state of Texas. Our campus is 98.9% low income, and many students come to school without any materials to begin the school year.

My students work so hard every day to adapt to third grade and all of our state assessment preparation, so it is crucial for me to provide creative ways to assess them and keep them engaged in the classroom.

I want to be able to provide a safe environment for them to learn and be comfortable. I also want them to become independent individuals who take pride in their work.

My Project

Last six weeks, my class earned the most words read and the most AR points earned for the third grade. We are striving to keep those awards these next six weeks which means my students are reading any chance they get!

I want to provide my students with a variety of books to read in class when they are done with their assignments.

Reading a book really aids in their fluency and comprehension. We are assigned one library day a week for only 30 minutes! , so this project will really help eliminate time spent away from instruction to go and exchange their books.

This project will provide my students with the opportunity to learn new vocabulary and expose them to experiences they might not be familiar with. Reading is a great way to expand the imagination and get their thinking to the next level.
