My Students

Do you remember a favorite picture book as a child? I am so excited to bring great books to my students; reading truly takes us places! In a world where we rely on technology so much, there is a need and demand to utilize traditional resources. Building character and good decision making through favorite books is my goal.

Third graders are eager to learn and please, and outstanding books can inspire greatness and genuine character.

Seeing students love books is priceless and I want to get books in their hands and hearts! I will share these great books with my students, and then they will find a home in our classroom library for years to come. My students love to sit in our library and share books with one another!

My Project

I have selected books that will inspire great character and also a love of reading. Third grade is a perfect age, where students are still impressionable and developing their character. They still love to read on our back carpet, share their ideas, and support each other.

These eye-catching titles and covers will engage students from the start, and the lessons books give will provide inspiration!

I have selected books filled with lovable and relatable characters. These books will challenge and encourage a sense of friendship, loyalty, honestly, sense of humor, and sincerity. After reading these books, students will take these lessons on with them into their lives.
