My Students

I still remember being so excited to read the Indian in the Cupboard series in 4th grade. My love of reading was really cemented with that series. I want my students to have the same experience and love of reading, but I need help in providing them with the resources.

As a teacher, I have had to provide every resource that my students need.

I would love to expose them to different types of books to open their eyes to the world of reading!

My Project

The books will allow students to escape from reality for a little and get lost in the book. My students will be able to improve their fluency, comprehension, and writing skills. When the students are more engaged in the book, they will want to participate in class discussions and complete assignments.

These books will be used to facilitate guided reading in small groups.The books will be used at home for the students to read and complete homework assignments.

It will allow the students to read some books that are challenging to them to help push them to succeed. I hope that these books make an impression on my students just like they did for me!
