My Students

"You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book."--Dr. Seuss.

Most of my students are not read to at home so they love it when I read to them.

I have precious memories of mom and my teachers reading to me when I was a child. I want my students to have these memories as well. My classroom is filled with 20 students eager to find the magic found in a book.

My Project

My students love to sit and listen to me read to them every day. I know they would love to gather on a carpet to listen to a story, but our current carpet is old and worn and looks dirty. A new carpet will make a world of difference in our classroom. We can use the carpet to come together to read as a group instead of sitting in desks. They can also use the carpet during center time and when reading with a friend. A carpet with the alphabet and numerals would be an awesome way to extend their learning experience.
