I Love to Read!

My Students

My students are a brilliant group of eighteen 8 and 9-year-olds. Each one has a different passion, but all of them have a love for education. We are a Title I school. Title I means over 65% of our school student population is living below the poverty line. Many of the students at my school come from one parent households or are being raised by grandparents or other relatives. While this is disheartening, the lack of resources at home has never stopped my students from wanting to learn more.

My Project

I will be using our new books for guided reading and independent choice reading. Students will have access to lower level books, while maintaining high interest. My hope is to instill a love for reading in each child. It can often be difficult to find books that older elementary students find interesting when these same students struggle to read grade level material. This project will specifically help my struggling readers who do not enjoy reading because they will have access to a variety of books that they can actually read and enjoy. We will use these daily in the classroom. We will also be using them during student and teacher conferences.
