My Students

One of my favorite hobbies is to read! Every year I share my love of books and reading with my students. As the year goes on, I notice more and more of my students losing themselves in a variety of books! There is nothing better, in my opinion, then falling in love with characters, diving deeper into current events, or unlocking the truth to the past!

My students are enthusiastic learners, avid readers, and eager for more!

My students come from a low income area where current texts and a variety genres are hard to come by. There is also a high mobility rate in our school district. Students come and go and many books are lost in the hardship and shuffle they experience. This however does not quench their thirst for more books and the feelings they experience when reading!

My Project

For this particular project I chose two different resources that will benefit my students greatly. One of the resources, StoryWorks, has over six different genres that have been specifically selected for each monthly issue.

Storyworks will benefit my students by exposing them to a variety of genres that are highly interesting and relevant!

Many times students fall in to the trap of only reading one type of text. My hope is to supply them with materials that they can take home, share with their families, and ignite a love of learning.

Another resources that I have chosen is Scholastic News. This is different from StoryWorks by being primarily informationally based texts. High interest Science and Social Studies articles that are paired with videos are exactly what my students need to stay engaged!

Both of these resources allow my students, who rarely have the opportunity to travel outside of their town, to explore the world around them and spark the fire to learn more!
