My Students

My amazing students are bright, energetic, eager, fun, and just plain cool; I am so lucky to be their teacher! My students have a wide range of reading abilities and I want them all to have access to multiple types and levels of reading material.

This project focuses on providing my students with a wide variety of quality books, at various levels.

I want to give them the freedom of choice in selecting quality reading materials that are at their level.

Thank you for your support! You are making a big difference in our classroom and in each of these children's lives.

My Project

In my 1st grade classroom, we follow the Daily-5 model. Each morning the students have a Read-to-Self time where they can choose a book, find a comfy corner, and read to themselves for at least 15 minutes. I want them to be so engaged in their reading that they ask me "Can we read for longer?"

This project will offer interesting, engaging, age-appropriate texts to my class of 16.

I want them to feel excited to read and eager to make book choices on topics and characters that they love.

Thank you for helping me fill our classroom library with fun, engaging books that will help encourage and inspire the next generation of voracious readers.
