Falling In Love With Reading

My students need book collections from their favorite authors like Mo Williams and characters like Llama Llama to feed their interest and love of reading.

My Students

These students are bright, inventive, adventurous, and curious. They are also very high needs. They come from a neighborhood that is poor and under developed and their home lives can be equally as difficult. Our school is a Title I, Tier I school where 100% of our kiddos receive free lunch. Our school also services the local children's shelter, where children are placed after being taken from their parents and awaiting foster care. Some of my students are hungry, some are cold, and some are afraid but they are all eager to learn.

It is my mission to not only educate them to the fullest of my abilities, but to give them a place that is comfortable and safe.

It is my hope that they leave my classroom with the skills and confidence to be successful members of their families, neighborhood, and society.

My Project

Series reading fosters an excitement for reading as students fall in love with characters or authors and gain comfort in familiar text. This project will allow my students a chance to explore books by the same author or about the same characters. As adults, we often have a favorite author, character, or series that we absolutely love and can't wait to read more of. I believe it is never too early to develop that love. Also, series reading is helpful in learning to read because the books often have a common vocabulary or writing style. That is especially important for my students who are still learning English as it helps build a foundation of words they know and can apply to other books.
