My Students

I teach a third grade class of twenty-seven active learners! My students love reading and exploring new series and new genres of literature! They are also very interested in nonfiction texts and biographies.

I've worked very hard to diversify my library so that the students in my class see themselves in the books that are available on our shelves.

Representation matters, especially in the books that are available for students to read. It is my hope that by filling our library shelves with books that represent the students in my classroom, my students' love for reading and exploring literature will continue to grow beyond the walls of our classroom.

My Project

Having a classroom library that reflects the readers in my classroom is a top priority for me. My students are voracious readers who are finding inspiration in biographies and are expanding their horizons through the pages of the books that they read.

Having access to new, exciting titles will allow me to introduce my students to new genres of literature that they might not seek out on their own.

We visit the school library weekly, but my students have the opportunity to book shop from our classroom library daily. I'm always on the lookout for new titles that will engage my readers, and the titles I've selected for this project are ones that have been on our wish list for a while!
