I Do Like Green Eggs and Ham!

My students need high interest books such as Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham, to be read during independent reading time.

My Students

"Teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning." As I enter my 20th year of teaching, I continue to follow this mantra in my classroom. I teach 28 wonderful students who come from poverty. My students are from varying ethnic backgrounds.Most of them come from homes that are struggling financially.

My students are extremely motivated, and they are genuinely respectful to each other.

They are lovers of learning, and I am truly grateful to be their teacher this year. They come to school with smiles on their faces, and they are eager to learn. We need materials to use in our literacy centers.

My Project

My first grade students are aspiring readers. They love having books read to them at story time. It is their favorite time of the day. As they develop their reading skills, I am introducing them to books from a variety of authors. One of their favorite authors is Dr. Seuss. The students love the silliness in these books.

Dr Seuss books are funny, silly, and enjoyable to read.

The Dr. Suess books are great to teach rhyming and beginning sight words. I would love to have a set of Dr. Seuss books for my classroom that the students and I can enjoy together.
