My Students

My students are a boisterous group that have a lot of desire for success in school, but don't quite have the skills. They crave structure that can help them find a comfortable, safe space to explore who they are and who they want to be.

Most students are entering school without a lot of confidence in their ability to be successful.

School has not always been a very positive place and that is slowly changing. As they are preparing to look ahead to high school, they are starting to see how school can be a way to get the life they want.

My Project

This is a collection of books that have either been requested by students or are similar to ones that students are currently enjoying. There are reluctant readers in our class that have enjoyed a book for the first time and we need to keep them excited and eager to read more.

These books are awesome and will immediately be in the hands of students who need encouragement to love reading.

Students have a dedicated time in class every day where we focus on skills of good readers. Any assignments during this time can be completed with a book of their choice. We want them building their skills in reading while having fun reading. These books will help support the students love of reading while building their skills at the same time.
