My Students

My students are amazing! They have a lot of energy and love to be engaged in hands on projects. I teach 3rd grade and my children are so excited and eager to start school everyday. I work in a low income, high poverty, Title I school.

My students are very curious and creative.

My 26 students are so special to me and want to work hard everyday. They put a lot of effort in their work. They do not even realize their full potential yet!

My Project

My students have been requesting some sport books and funny Lemony Snicket books. Matt Christopher books are just perfect for sport lovers. They love to read books that interest them. I want to capture their enthusiasm and include books of their choice. We read every morning when they come in and we have a reading center daily. My students read a novel a month and then present to the class. Reading is very important and I want a library with a variety of levels for all students to be able to access books at their reading level. I know they will enjoy this novels.
