My Students

Our school is made up a variety of families from different neighborhoods, educational backgrounds, and economic groups. One of the many things we all have in common is a love and desire for these children to all be successful. All the students are at different reading levels, and we are working on making sure that they have high interest books at many different levels. Some children are still learning their letter names and sounds, while others are already reading books.

My Project

Graphic novels are a great way to begin to tell stories without being able to read all the words. Others of my students are beginning readers who need a bit of a challenge. These graphic novel books will allow all my students in my class to be readers of interesting new exciting books.

Graphic novels are so interesting to all students now, and these books help increase and motivate the love of reading.

I am asking for some fun, engaging books to provide for my kindergarten readers as they grow as readers and writers. Who knows, these readers might someday end up writing their own graphic novels!
