My Students

My wonderful class is comprised of 27 energetic eight and nine-year olds, who are excited for new learning opportunities.

The students in our room have very different personalities and learning styles, and lots of energy and enthusiasm for learning.

They love to try new projects and activities, and thrive on activities that allow them to be creative. I'm hoping that this project will help provide extra resources to support their learning in school. I feel so fortunate to be their teacher and support their growth this year. Thank you for your support!

My Project

We have been working on a Book Club in our class, and I have been adding new sets of chapter books to keep my class engaged and develop their love of reading. A Book Club is an activity where students get to pick a chapter book and complete activities with their peers, to share what they have read learned and read about. I have leveraged the Scholastic book club points, book fair donations and personal purchases as much as possible. I found several book that I really want to add as Book Club options, but they are a little beyond my class budget. Thank you for your support!
