My students are determined, creative, and have a willingness to learn that is inspiring. They are explorers, investigators, mathematicians, and budding readers. My students can often be seen working collaboratively to solve problems. They welcome any challenge given to them and persevere through those challenges with zeal.
Not only are my students amazing but so are their families.
The students in my classroom come from good homes with positive family influences. Their parents are very involved in their education and want the best for their children. We all; parents, students, and myself, work together to create a learning experience that is both powerful and engaging.
My students need new leveled readers to help them become more confident and accomplished readers. As a part of our weekly homework, I have a Read Every Day folder that goes home with students. This folder contains books that we have read in guided reading as well as an additional book that is on their reading level. I would like to include more than one additional book in their folders each week.
Research shows that reading each night for 20 minutes significantly increases the likelihood of reading success.
The books that I am requesting will be used to help fill some of that time for my students. Not only will they learn new vocabulary but they will also gain more practice using the reading strategies that I am teaching them in class. This also helps me to continuously communicate students progress with parents. It connects families directly to our classroom.
