My Students

My students are AMAZING!

My students are my children.

My students are eager learners.

My students are caring. My students are ambitious. My students are ready. My students feel safe. My students are loved.

My students are bright. My students are kind.

My students deserve everything at school that they lack at home.

I would love to give the WORLD to my students because they deserve everything in the world. Did I forget to tell you?

My students are AMAZING!

My Project

My students deserve a comfortable spot to curl up with a great book! During independent reading time and many other times throughout the day the students can do a much better job at getting their work done if they are comfortable. Help them to get comfy on this great big soft rug! This would motivate them to build their stamina during reading time as well. Just like adults we all look to find a comfortable spot to lay out, grab a pillow and get lost in a book that is one of our favorite genres. This rug is so amazing!
