My Students

Our school is a K-5 school with approximately 700 students. I have 24 fun, caring, loving, and motivated students in my 4th and 5th grade high ability class. All of my students love to learn and experience new things each day. Hands-on activities are a must. My goal is to challenge them each day with different experiences which make them think. They love reading and experiencing science. These students are fun and have a lot of energy for school.

My Project

My students love to read. Help them continue this love by adding to our classroom library. We need small sets of five different books. My students are constantly reading and finding new authors to try.

I asked my students about some books they would like to read or authors that they would like to add to our classroom library.

I have included various types of literature in this project. I hope to use the books for individual reading and for book club sets. The books will also provide an opportunity for them to progress towards their Accelerated Reader goals. These books will also teach a number of reading and language arts skills.
