My Students

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." -Dr. Seuss I want my students to have to opportunity to read more biography and mystery books.

My third graders love to read!

They enjoy "shopping" each week in our classroom library for new books to read. They love when I get new books that they haven't had the opportunity to read yet. I want to strengthen their love of reading by gaining a new supply of books on their "Just Right" levels.

My Project

My students will be able to use these new mystery and biography books during our two units of study. We will be working in "Mystery Book Clubs" & "Biography Book Clubs" this year. I would love to add these books to our classroom library so that my children may have a wide range of books to choose from on their "Just Right" levels.

These books will help my students to learn about the genre of mystery and all of the different parts that make it up.

They will also learn about many different people when we read different biographies. They will be able to gain knowledge about many different leaders, inventors, artists, musicians, etc...
