My Students

We are a classroom ready to embrace a year! My goal this year is to make ALL children fall in love with reading. As enthusiasm grows, I'd love to see our classroom library do the same!

My students are strengthening their reading skills and readying themselves for chapter books.

The new "Branches" books are the perfect transition from picture books to chapter books. They are fun, light-hearted reads that are not overwhelming. They are perfect for students who are growing their confidence with chapter books.

I've selected several high interest books that will help foster their love of reading and strengthen their literacy skills!

My Project

When students are motivated to read, it leads to success in all areas of life. These books are new releases, so students are excited about them. To see the smiles on their faces when they see me unveil new books is just priceless.

The Branches books feature minimal text on a page with large font so it is not overwhelming and students feel pride that they are reading chapter books!

I want all students to gain confidence as they further develop their reading skills. These 50 new books will help do exactly that! Thank you for taking the time to review and consider my project!
