My Students

My students are all amazing individuals. They come together each day as a team, willing to help each other out. My students come from very different backgrounds. They deserve the best, and often do not have access to everything they need.

The students in my class are lively and love to move and play.

They enjoy laughing and having fun in first grade. The students come to me at all different levels of learning. There are so many different needs that each student has in my classroom. Our school is located in a small community, where everyone is very supportive; however, many people in this community live below poverty. My students come from a very diverse population and socioeconomic status. The students in my classroom come from many backgrounds and are of many ethnicities.

The students in my class are all very special. They are unique, loving and inspire me on a daily basis.

My Project

My students need high interest chapter books to read in our first grade classroom. They will allow the students at high reading levels to read books that are at their just right level but also be books they want to read.

Our classroom library needs an update!

We currently only have a few outdated chapter books for students to choose from and they need more choices! Our class has many students that are able to read chapter books and their options are very limited. They enjoy the Dogman, Ivy & Bean, The Magic Treehouse series as well as many others.
