My Students

My students enjoy coming to school and learning. The majority of them come from low socioeconomic settings. Most of the families do not have the resources to purchase learning materials for their homes nor are they able to experience enrichment activities outside of school. I believe that it is my responsibility to provide as much instructional support possible for these students to experience the superior education that they deserve.

Our school encourages students to become leaders in every aspect of their lives.

Providing them with the best instruction and resources everyday helps them to become productive leaders of their own learning.

My Project

I am so excited to build my library for my 2nd grade students. It's been a long time since I've been in the lower grades so they are in need of lots of books to help grow their love for reading.

My students love to read and they love to be read to.

I have chosen a variety of books to cover all the different reading levels in my classroom.

Some of the books I've chosen are the Junie B. Jones series, Magic Tree House series, Pete the Cat series, and much more. I've also chosen a variety of holiday books that I can read aloud to my class.

My students are required to take several Accelerated Reading test every week. All of the books I've chosen are all books they can test on. This will be a tremendous help with their AR testing.

I have an amazing group of kids and they will love being able to read all of these books.
