My Students

We are a Title I school located in South Central Los Angeles. My students are excited to learn and come to school with such wonder and awe about the new things they will learn.

My students come from low-income families.

Many of my parents do not speak English and struggle to help their children academically. One hundred percent of the students at our school receive free or reduced-price meals. I have a wide range of learners including students with special needs. My students are amazing lifelong learners who are excited to come to school every day.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy. I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student 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.

I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time. The manipulatives that I selected will also help them foster their reading goals by creating words with stamps and playdough.
