My Students

Think back to a time when you were so entranced by a book that it felt like your very own adventure. Think about the eagerness and anguish you experienced as you neared the end of that book. Do you remember the anticipation and excitement you felt while waiting for the next book in the series to be released?

My students are avid and voracious readers who are craving new written adventures.

Many of these students do not have access to books away from school. Our classroom library serves as an essential resource for those students. My students love perusing the shelves for new adventures as well as non-fiction resources for science and social studies research. There is a hunger and love for reading among my students that longs to be fulfilled.

My Project

These books will provide numerous reading opportunities for my students. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy! Every student book that is placed there is treated with love and care, and students are thankful for the opportunity to read them. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. Students will be able to choose books which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time, book studies, literature groups, and non-fiction research.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will both challenge and entrance them.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them and books that teach them about historical events.

The best way to increase fluency and comprehension is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow to be better readers. These books will enrich their knowledge and light a fire to further develop their love and passion for reading.
