My Students

My amazing first grade students have begun to develop a true love for reading and have become enthralled in building good reading habits. Their unique personalities and drive to learn to read is truly apparent each and every day. To ensure their love for reading continues as we move through the school year, it is important to me that my students have a variety of books to choose from. Please help my students to continue to grow their love for reading, for "today a reader...tomorrow a leader!"

My Project

Within every unit, my students are given the opportunity to choose fiction and nonfiction books to help them develop and apply new reading skills and strategies. It is crucial that my students are given the opportunity for individual book choice to support their individual interests and excitement for reading!

My students are expected to choose 8-10 books from our classroom library each week to read, applying their reading habits to help them solve tricky words, helping to build fluency and understand of a wide variety of texts.

If students are given a variety of texts, they will each have an equal opportunity to choose from all different texts to spark their interests when learning to read!
