My Students

I teach a wonderful class of First Graders in Fresno, California. My students are curious, thoughtful, and hard working. They come to school each day ready to learn. They also have such a positive attitude and always try to do their best.

One of our class goals is to become the best readers possible.

My students are so proud when they are able to sound out words and read. They absolutely love to learn!

My Project

The decodable books will give my students an opportunity to independently practice the phonics skills they are learning. Students will have an opportunity to choose books they enjoy reading. My goal is to have a classroom library with books for all levels of reading.

These new books will give my students a variety of books to choose from that will allow them to read independently at their own level.

The decodable books will continue to help my students grow more confident in reading. This project will help enrich their experiences in reading and grow their love of learning.
