My Students

My students love to read! They come to school ready to dive into reading. They work hard. They care about each other. They ask for more silent reading time daily. They enjoy the quiet relaxing time curling up with a good book.

We have quite a few different reading levels in our classroom, but my students are quick to help each other when someone is struggling.

They enjoy acting like the teacher when it comes time to partner read. All of my students are eager to help out a friend throughout the day. They offer each other their supplies if someone is missing scissors, pencils, or glue. Their many acts of kindness throughout the day make me so proud!

My Project

My goal for this project is to get books in the hands of my students as we embark on this new way of learning since COVID-19 caused school closing. I want to give my students a bigger variety of topics and reading levels to choose from so they can feel successful. Many of my students have a small library of books at home. However, I want to provide them with new books that can be used during our distance learning sessions.

The addition of these new books in our classroom library will help my students build their fluency and comprehension skills as they read books at their own individual reading level.
