My Students

The kids at my school come to school each and every day energized and ready to learn. We are located in the great state of Nebraska. Our school is not a Title I school, so funding for extra supplies is not in the budget. There are students with family serving in the military, students who are English Language Learners, and many more.

The students love to read and need more books that they can read independently.

Kindergarten is an important year of school for the children.

It is the first year they are working together as a team, so every child can succeed!

My Project

My students need good quality books to read at their independent reading level so the kids can practice and gain confidence in their individual abilities. These books are both fiction and nonfiction sets that are paired together which emphasis on a specific subject. They can be used in small groups as well as independently. The sets also correlate to our science and social studies curriculum which deal with frogs and their habitats as well as different land formations such as volcanoes.

The children will gain confidence by having books to read independently!

The books also include books about insects, where animals live, what insects eat, and the art of making fantastic bridges.
