My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that I want my students to enjoy - I read on the carpet to them, the complete work there and they are learning to read independently. Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful got the opportunity to read. All of these books have bene chosen with my students in mind! Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.
