My Students

My school has a dynamic learning environment where we empower all students to become independent thinkers.

A positive learning environment is what I strive to create for my students.

My Pre-K class is full of creative, curious, and talented individuals. They love to share and are hungry for knowledge! I work with amazing students that come from a variety of backgrounds. They love coming to school everyday and learning, and I want to ensure they have all the necessary materials to be successful, not only at school but at home as well.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy: I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
