I Like Reading Books and I Cannot Lie

My students need high interest books to add to our classroom library in order to build a genuine love for reading.

My Students

I have been given the opportunity to teach the best group of little people imaginable. They are kind, generous, and appreciate the small things in life. They arrive each day with a smile, ready to show world the greatness inside of them.

These little people are absolutely amazing.

They face many challenges and hardships that would defeat any average person. One hundred percent of my students receive free lunch, English is a second language for the majority of my class, and many are facing extraordinary challenges at home. Some even experience periods of homelessness. My students are not average, however. They are extraordinary!

Despite the many challenges they face, they come to school ready and excited to learn! They come with open minds and open hearts and are the most remarkable and kindhearted people I have had the pleasure to know. This is shown day after day as they request extra time to work in place of recess, show excitement over STEM and other hands-on activities, persevere to complete accurate work no matter how long it takes, and extend a helping hand to classmates when they need it.

My Project

Inspired by "Sir Mix Alot," pretend you hear the beats in the background as you read...

I like reading books and I cannot lie,

You other readers can't deny,

When a new book comes in on the classroom bookcase

And you put it in your face, your mind starts to run!

You want to pull up tough in our class reading nook,

'cause you notice that book is stuffed!

Deep in imagination, I'm thinkin'

I'm hooked and I can't stop readin'

Oh teacher, I want to read with ya

I don't even need a sticker,

See all the boys and girls tried to warn me

But those books just make me such a smarty!

Ohhhh Dr. Seuss collection!

You say you wanna get in a reader's lens?

Well read me, read me

And consider donating to our classroom library!

On a side note, my kids were perusing through our classroom library and they asked about some Dr. Seuss and Dav Pilkey books. It would mean the world to them if they could have some for our library. Thanks for your consideration!
