My Students

Imagine, reading a science book on your own. What an accomplishment. "I did it myself," resounds throughout the classroom, as students rush to read to each other and the teacher. Students demonstrate pride in their accomplishment, using science and reading concurrently.

Our students live on an island in the Pacific Ocean.

We are a K-5 school with most students receiving free and reduce lunch. Though some of our children are financially challenge, they strive to do their best academically. Our school embraces a belief that all students can learn and achieve. We encourage our students to use technology to enhance their education. One of our goals is to create life-long learners who contribute to the local and global community. Our students for the past six years have passed the state assessment.

My Project

Our students need to read books at their Lexile level. To make life long learners and readers, students need to read in first grade. However, many books are narrative or fiction. By selecting informational text, we expand our students repetroire. Science books are interesting and informative, and they encompass non-fiction and the genre of Science. In our first grade classrooms, students are eager to read new books. As we introduce this science based unit, every student will read a book. No more waitling for the teacher to read aloud. Students will say, "I can read it myself."

At our school, reading is fundamentally a part of everything we do.

We want students to understand reading is a part of each part of the curriculum. This Science-based collection will accomplish this with Common Core Exemplars. A donation to this project, promotes reading in some of our youngest learners.
