My Students

I am a third grade teacher at KA in Camden NJ.

My students are enthusiastic about learning and are excited to read many books this year.

My students are eager learners that love using hands on materials and technology to learn. My students have a deep passion for reading and literacy whether it is independent, in groups or as a full class. I want to give them every opportunity to read, listen and explore the books that they need and want.

My Project

My students need more books like Educational Insights Hot Dots Let’s Master 3rd Grade, Diary of A Wimpy Kids and resources to help them with reading comprehension. I chose to add more books to my classroom collection, like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the Big Nate series to intrigue and excite my students to not only read, but enjoy what they are comprehending.

I also chose resources like Hot Dots to help encourage students to comprehend and understand key reading and language arts skills.

I think these materials will help my students succeed and allow them to work both individually and with others.

My students would definitely benefit from more books and reading materials to my classroom to apply their knowledge of what they've learned.
