My Students

Dr. Seuss said, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Help my kids discover the love of reading!

My students are creative, positive, motivated, and interested in the fictional world books take them to.

Many of my students rely on my classroom library and my recommendations to check out high-interest books. Students are always asking me if I have the "hot new books" in my classroom library. I definitely need to keep up with the ever-changing world of young adult fiction and nonfiction. I want to create a buzz about books and an excitement for reading in my classroom. If I can get them a novel they love, and they take the time to read it, then I have accomplished my goal.

My Project

Today's students want to read about all different kinds of things. They want to read about traveling into the unknown, graphic novels, real-life stories, realistic fiction, and many other subjects. I want to be able to give my kids what they need in order to spark their love of reading. Sometimes it isn't feasible for my kids to take the time to go to our school library for books, so if I have novels in my classroom library for them to check out, all the better.

Louis L'Amour said, “Once you have read a book you care about, some part of it is always with you.” I want my kids to enjoy reading and by having these novels, they will get that opportunity.
