My Students

My students are amazing military kids! Our school is located on a military base and services only active-duty families. Not only do my students face the challenges of having to move and start over every few years, but also the stress of being separated from loved ones during deployments. Many of my students have already attended several elementary schools during their early school careers. As their challenges and needs are unique, my goal is to create a safe and student-centered classroom that supports them academically, socially, and emotionally.

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-students can search for a new adventure, mystery, or learning opportunity all through a book! All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. I have selected books that students have asked about. Students read the first book in a series and then beg for more.

Each of these books will allow my students to embark on a new journey as they are growing as readers.

These books will be used as students complete independent reading and reading conferences. Students will be able to choose the books that they love and fit their interest. Each series will allow students to follow familiar characters, build confidence, and reading fluency. Please help improve our classroom library with these new books!
