I have a class of amazing 3rd graders. Many come to school with less than ideal circumstances at home. School is often the most stable and consistent part of their lives. Our classroom is in a high poverty rural area in the Cascade foothills.
My goal, every day, is to help all of my students fulfill their potential and overcome the challenges they face in their lives.
They are eager to learn, but often need outside of the box thinking to engage them in learning.
I have many students who love sports and I need a larger variety of intervention reading books for them to read at their level. Our library has a few of these graphic novels and they are checked out as soon as they are returned. The kids love them!
These books will help students, who sometimes struggle, spark a love of reading.
There is a wide variety of sports for them to choose from, including some nontraditional sports like skate boarding and bmx bike riding.
My goal every year is to turn every student into a reader by finding books that they can't put down! These books will help our class reach that goal.
