My Students

My students come to class ready to learn each day. They are excited about school and love to find places throughout the room to read and do other assignments. I have a big class that loves different, engaging materials that can be used in the classroom each day. My students love to read and work on challenging math problems. I want to continue to provide the resources that are needed to push my students to be the best that they can be.

My Project

My students love reading materials that captivate their attention. When my students are engaged, they are motivated to learn and develop literacy skills. Having reading materials about sports and interesting nonfiction passages will allow my students to have this engagement. Our curriculum does not have many engaging materials to use with small groups, and I have to find and pull as many things I can think of to help their engagement. By having these literacy resources in my classroom, I will better be able to help my students improve their reading skills and help them to find a love of reading.
