My Students

My students are energetic, inquisitive, and creative fourth grade students! They are eager to learn new things and love when I share new materials with them. They make teaching fun and rewarding on a daily basis!

Providing a variety of reading materials is essential to fostering a love for reading.

My students have shown a desire to become better readers and I want to help them by providing exciting books to read. One of the best parts of being a teacher is seeing the kids excited and engaged in learning, especially reading.

My Project

As a Reading teacher, I am always looking for different books to interest my students. Exposing children to different titles allows them to experience different genres so they can find what suits them the best! These books will enhance my classroom library and provide students more opportunities to read.

Providing children a variety of books, in various reading levels, can inspire them to become lifelong readers.

Often, students believe that reading is boring, but it is usually because they have not discovered the right type of genre. Having these books will provide fiction and nonfiction books to pique their interest.
