My Students

Our class is full of wonder. This classroom is full of curious children with good hearts who want to learn and do good in the world. Our students are very motivated to learn new things about the world and to utilize new technologies to enhance their learning.

There are very thoughtful children in our class, with hearts of gold.

Each child is excited to learn about topics such as crayfish, Pilgrims, and the American Revolution. Ours is an amazing class!

My Project

Studying the genre of myths is a requirement in our third grade curriculum. Myths are not only great pieces of literature, they are exciting for third graders to read.

Children love reading about the magical worlds contained in these wonderful books.

The stories are captivating and spark the imagination. Reading books like these, of high interest, encourages children to read.

The children in our classroom have loved learning about myths; however, we do not have enough books in our collection.

Please help extend and enhance our class library to include these titles. Books like these make children excited about reading and excited about learning.
