My Students

I hope to have a class full of enthusiastic learners once school reopens. I know with the help of these resources as well as my instruction, my students can become better readers and become great leaders when they get older. Last school year I realized that my students were very low academically so I decided to get some additional resources for my classroom for the upcoming school year. These resources will also help them become better students all around which will get them ready for a successful future!

My Project

Do you know what it's like to not have any type of reading resources at your home? Well many of my students do not know what it's like and I would like to give them the opportunity to have this experience.

Our school is categorized as Title 1 which means a majority of them receive free lunch which is a result of their parents not making sufficient money.

They are all very loving and appreciative of what they have and I would like to offer them more.

By having these resources in our classroom it will open many doors for my students. Not only will it be educational and encourage them to learn but it will also be fun. They can play a little while they are learning. I will be able to make it fun for them and encourage them to want to learn to read! Being able to read is a foundation for children's learning and I would like to provide this for them.
