My Students

My fourth-grade classroom is a place full of challenge, discovery, and life long learning. 100% of the students in our school qualify to receive free or reduced price lunch and 100% of all students eat breakfast and a healthy snack provided daily. My students come to school ready to learn! They are fun, curious learners and full of life. My students are between the ages of 9 and 11. They love to work together and explore new things. It is so important for me to continue to instill a love for learning despite any obstacles they face living in an inner-city.

My fourth-graders are eager to learn about the world through reading.

My Project

I am looking to create a classroom library that is full of exciting and interesting books for all of my students. My students read on numerous reading levels and I need to offer them books they can read for their level and books that are appealing and fun. So many students hate reading because they have never found that book that helps them picture a "movie in their mind" and I am trying to do just that. Kids need books that they want to read and choice. We all know that if the books you read are boring, you won't want to read. So, please help!
