My Students

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.(Dr. Seuss) My kids need interesting new books to help them learn. These books will be read during carpet time and will help us learn many different things!

My Kindergarten students are curious and fun loving.

These kids want to learn! Some of my students are coming to school with little or no knowledge of reading or basic literacy skills. Many of my kids have not attended preschool, so this is their first time in a structured learning environment.

My Project

These books will help the kids learn about a variety of topics. The set includes math books like Inch By Inch, How Big Is A Foot. The science books will capture student interest and allow them to learn about leaves, seasons, life cycles and more. The set also includes books that will spark student creativity and allow the kids to enjoy literature.

The collection of books that we need will allow kids to have fun while learning.

The stories are diverse and cover many different topics including plants, life cycles, math concepts, letters, words, social skills and some books that are just fun and silly. The kids will enjoy these books and learn a great deal at the same time!
