My Students

I teach an amazing group of first graders this year in a public school setting. Our classroom is an environment based on trust and acceptance. Students are empowered and comfortable with being in charge of their own learning and allow themselves to learn from their mistakes. They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

"I love to read because it helps me learn new things".

They are eager learners and have a voracious reading appetite. Children learning to read need access to meaningful and personally interesting books that are on their reading level.

My Project

The books I have chosen will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy. Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading.

My students are book-loving, avid readers, and enthusiastic learners.

Students will be able to choose books, based on their independent reading level to enjoy and discuss.
