My Students

I teach 25 wonderful, energetic fourth-grade students at a Title I School in Billings, MT. My students come from a variety of different households. Many of the students at our school receive free or reduced price lunch. They come to school hungry for knowledge and are excited to learn as much as they can. Many of my students come from households in which parents don't always have a positive view on school, my job is to help families and students see the joy in school.

My Project

In this project you will find a variety of graphic novel sets that I am requesting. Many of my fourth graders are reluctant readers, however, they're finding graphic novels to be interesting. The downside is our library only has so many copies of each book and many times the book they want is currently checked out.

Encouraging my reluctant readers with our own class sets of graphic novels may continue to spark their growing love for reading.

With easy access to these books within our own classroom students will have a better opportunity to read the books that they're interested in reading.
