My Students

At our Title I school in South Carolina 100% of our students receive free lunch; therefore, parents often don't have the funds to buy books or other basic school supplies. Our families have limited reading and other academic materials at home. However, our parents know when they send them to school, they are getting the best education possible.

Nothing compares to teaching third grade.

My students are an amazing group of young students that come to school everyday prepared to put their all into everything they do. With your support, they will have the materials needed to add to their work ethic.

My Project

These books will enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place where my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level, as well as give them books that represent who they are as individuals.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading
