My Students

My school serves a population of students who are eager to learn and grow as students. Almost 60% of students in our school qualify for free or reduced-rate lunch. Most of our classes have mixtures of regular education students, special education students, as well as English-learners, all who accept and learn from one another.

Our sixth graders are full of energy and life.

They greet each day and take on new challenges in the hopes of growing as people and learners.

My Project

I chose a number of high-interest books to excite my students about reading. Students have the opportunity to read within my class during designated silent reading times daily, and when they complete their classwork early. I desire for my students to be excited about reading, and eager to pick up a book each day. Which is why I have selected a number of books in various genres.

Incorporating silent reading in the classroom increases comprehension, enhances reading enjoyment, builds vocabulary and improves writing skills.

I truly believe with the right books, students can be excited to read. Having so many books in my classroom right at their fingertips will make reading exciting and attainable for my students. Please consider coming alongside me to encourage students to pick up a book and read!
