My Students

My students attend an elementary school in Richmond, California. My classroom consists of students with various needs. They come to my class eager to read. I feel it's time to update my classroom library with a variety of new series.

With new students every year, I've noticed that the onced loved Junie B.

Jones is no longer a favorite. I'd like to update my classroom library with new and upcoming series that students will love to read. I know they will love it.

My Project

Are you tired of reading the same old books? Sometimes you just want to read a new series. Well that is exactly how my students feel. They are tired of reading the same old series like Junie B. Jones, Magic Tree House, Amelia Badelia, etc. It is time to update the library to include books that students would love.

Our class library also needs more books that build character, books that model how great writers write, and books that focus on feelings.

My students deserve the have a library that is filled with topics that they want to know more about.
