My Students

My students are truly amazing and one of a kind! They come to school each day with a passion for learning. Each day we take 15 minutes to ourselves to read personal books that spark our interest. We also take an additional 15 minutes as a class to complete a chapter book read aloud. My students are never ready to for me to close the book when the 15 minutes are up.

Creative & enthusiastic; my students are true book worms.

My Project

The goal of my project is to create a space where students can go in the classroom to find reading materials. Currently my class is without an area where students can go to pick out a books of their choice. The bookshelf will serve as a storage unit that houses a variety of texts. The books will range from picture books to chapter books, non-fiction to fiction, and formative to just for fun. The themes will promote a positive learning environment and meet the interest of a variety of students. With time our library will continue to grow and inspire young scholars!
