My Students

Each child in my classroom loves coming to school each day and learning. They enjoy lessons that involve visuals, movement, hands on experiences and group work!

My class is full of book-loving students that feel excitement and joy when diving into the newest book in their favorite series.

What they love the most about reading is book clubs-they like to partner read and share opinions on what has been read. My students are inquisitive readers who are craving to discover the next story!

My Project

Having these books in our classroom will help our students strengthen their literacy skills and love for books. The classroom library is a place that my students really love-they get to choose what to read, where to read it and enjoy every minute of our reading block! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.
