My Students

"The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." --Dr. Seuss My students have a strong desire to go places and learn new things! With more books to read, they will have the power to do this.

These students live in a place not far from the beach, yet some of them have never seen the sand or ocean!

The ones that do have memories of the beach long to experience more of the world around them. They attend a school with a large military population. Some of my students have family members working overseas. One thing they all have in common is they love to learn new things! My students are children with passions and dreams.

My Project

My students need 6 class sets of books and a variety of additional titles to inspire a love for reading. My students need sets of books that we can read as a class. This will be an opportunity for children to get lost in what they are reading. It is important for students to learn to enjoy reading. These books will be used for students to follow along as I read. With the hectic schedule of today's society, many children miss out on opportunities to be exposed to reading. The more literacy they are exposed to, the better readers they will become.

This project will show students what reading has to offer.

They will have chances to increase their vocabulary, make connections to literature, and form opinions about what they read. As we read the books together, students will be encouraged to express and support their opinions with their peers. This will be a time for all readers to shine!
