My Students

My class is so excited when presented with exciting opportunities. One of the things they enjoy most is reading. My 3rd-graders are ready and willing to read chapter books.

My students enjoy the challenge of reading chapter books.

They love to sit quietly reading their books during Daily Silent Reading Time. Before the school day is over, they make sure to take their chapter books home to continue reading.

My Project

My students' learning will have an impact as they have access to chapter books.

Chapter books will inspire my students to read, read, and read some more!

Third graders like to challenge themselves and read more complex books.

The variety of chapter books will inspire my students to read at a higher level. Having the chapter books will also allow my students to take the books home and read for pleasure with their families. The engagement that my students will have with parents and siblings will be priceless. The entire family will have the opportunity to discuss what is being read.
