My Students

My fourth-grade class has 32 students in it. My students are eager to learn, enjoy school, and are motivated to succeed. They love to use their imagination and grow as learners. We are a large school with over 1,000 students. We are a Title I school and all the students in my school all receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of the students in my school are English as Second Language learners.

We have many different languages spoken in my school. My students come to school with big smiles and are ready to learn and achieve great things!

My Project

My students are in need of leveled fiction books to fill our classroom library. It is important to have books that my students can read and understand. Reading is a life long skill that is essential for academic success.

Help fill our classroom with amazing books!

My students love to read and enjoy sharing ideas about what they have learned. We love to create projects and write about what we have read. We also enjoy making connections to the characters we are reading about. It is so important to have books that my students can relate to and enjoy. Please help fill our library!
