My Students

My students have a great love of learning. They enjoy coming to school each day. Most of my students are from a low economical social status. They don't have much so they cherish the things they do have. Our school has more than 60% of our students on free lunch. This means we have a lower socio-economic status and are a title one school.

My students have a deep love of learning and want to explore learning in many different ways.

They love coming to school and come excited about what the day will hold for them. These students are excited about life and learning.

My Project

These books will help my students do book studies with fun and engaging titles. My students will be able to dive deep into these books and learn literacy skills that will help them in a lifetime of learning. They will be able to use these books to complete fun and engaging activities and learn skills that will help them to learn forever.

My students will use these books to practice comprehension skills, learn about different genres of books, study characters, be exposed to new vocabulary words and many more much needed skills.

With these books I will be able to use them in ways that will engage all of my students with learning and help them to become successful readers.
