My Students

My students are incredibly curious and enthusiastic learners who love to read and discover new worlds. Even after a rigorous and demanding school day, they always pull out their books to read and experience more.

When asked who is reading an interesting book, every hand goes up as they eagerly share about their personal books.

Whenever I get new books for our classroom library, I am overwhelmed with volunteers wanting to help unpack and sort the books. These scholars deserve to have as many books at their fingertips as I can give them.

My Project

The more students read, the easier it becomes. The easier reading is, the more they read and the more knowledge they gain. In order to read more, students need books that captivate their interest and characters to whom they can relate. The graphic novels in this project will excite all of my students and be particularly helpful to those who struggle with independent reading comprehension.

When my students get their hands on these high quality graphic novels, even the most reluctant readers will be excited for independent reading time.

I cannot wait to see their imaginations expand and their reading abilities skyrocket. Thank-you for your help in giving all students a book to be excited about!
