My Students

I am excited to be working with students who are new to school! I can't wait until my friends step into their new home away from home.

The majority of my students come from single-parent households where they struggle to make ends meet, but that does not stop them from wanting to come to school everyday.

Giving the students the opportunity to explore the different learning options in the classroom is amazing and beneficical to them because not every student learns at the same pace.

My Project

This set of books will be a great addition to my classroom because it will let my students enjoy a story when they are on their own doing their workstations.

This box set will give my students the opportunity to explore different books that they may be familiar with.

They are able to listen to the story and follow along, which is important for kids. They are learning how to read and a read-along will help give them some guidance to practice on their own. Having the students listen to a book and follow along can benefit those friends who are struggling to read.
