My Students

I'm really excited about working with my students this year. They are a very diverse group of students. Our school receives assistance from the federal government with programs like Title I. All of our students qualify for free breakfast so that they are ready to have a good day and so that they can focus.

My students are in 1st grade and they are anxious to learn.

They are very curious and enjoy learning.

They also enjoy working together in pairs, and groups. They do so very respectfully and they cooperate with each other all the time. They are very responsible and they know very clear the expectations that we (teacher, administration, parents) have for them.

My Project

These books will be a major tool for my students' education. Adding these book to my library will give the students an ample selection of reading. My students are curious and love to learn.

It will help them with their fluency, expand their vocabulary and with their reading comprehension skills.

A variety of books will focus on students' strengths and give them autonomy. Reading boosts critical thinking skills, and enhances imagination. According to research, access to books exhibits higher reading achievement.

Reading will build their confidence and bonding time with their classmates. Books will offer the students information that they can't get any other way. Reading is just fun.
