My Students

My first graders are avid readers, writers, mathematicians, and joke-tellers. There are thirty-six year olds that come into the classroom on the first day and never stop moving or learning!

Their motivation always runs higher than you could imagine even when reading a book they have read twenty times before.

The goal of our classroom is to stay motivated throughout the year and support each other in all sorts of new discoveries. Each year it changes a bit, but I always notice there is nothing first graders love more than taking charge and feeling at home in their classroom. My students attend a Chicago public school and come from very diverse cultural and economic backgrounds.

My Project

The classroom library is a special place full of books, but we want our library to be more than that! We want it to be a place full of the most interesting titles and picture books to help us stay motivated to read, read, read!

Children gravitate towards all sorts of books especially those that capture the imagination and make them think.

I've created a list of books to help us seek out our interests and find out how amazing books can really be! We are asking for texts about social justice issues and beloved superheroes, books that have the most beautiful pop-ups inside, funny early readers, and imaginative graphic novels. All these titles will build our introduction to new genres and help us explore who we are as readers.

A classroom library is only as interesting as the books on its shelves. Please help us stock our shelves with books that no child could possibly resist!
