My Students

I have a wonderful class of creative, thoughtful group of kindergarten students who love to learn. They love hands-on, engaging projects that will allow them to think outside the box to find solutions. They come to school ready to learn and always have a smile on their faces. They are my inspiration.

My Project

With a classroom library my students will be able to choose a book from a variety of books that will interest them and will allow them to read independently at their own level. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more and a classroom library will help my students grow stronger in reading. These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the books. My students love to read and this project will help enrich their love of reading.
