My Students

Welcome to our room and get ready to help out an amazing group of scholars. My class is full of energy this year and we are embarking on a reading journey together.

New materials and new books always make it easy to feel like you can do anything.

A new notebook, a new pencil, or a new chapter book can bring a smile and love of learning to so many faces. Since I have so many students on numerous reading levels, I would love to provide a selection of books for both boys and girls. I want to give this to my class and hope that you can help me give this amazing gift!

My Project

I am looking to create a classroom library that is full of exciting and interesting books for all of my students. My students read on numerous reading levels and I need to offer them books they can read for their level and books that are appealing and fun. So many students hate reading because they have never found that book that helps them picture a "movie in their mind" and I am trying to do just that. Kids need books that they want to read and choice. We all know that if the books you read are boring, you won't want to read. So, please help!
