My Students

My classroom is filled with energetic, creative students who show up everyday with a passion and excitement for learning. They LOVE hands-on and engaging activities that help highlight all of their amazing talents and learning styles. I love to inspire the love of books.. and this year they have been inspired. My classroom library has been extremely loved.

They are always excited to dive into our next book study.

Books are definitely a passion in our room.

I want to be able to provide them every experience and opportunity they deserve and give them the best 3rd grade year.

My Project

These books will make it so all of my students are able to dive into great literature. I can't wait to see them fall in love with these stories, have deep discussions about character development and show an excitement to turn each page.

These books will spark an excitement for reading.

Allowing each one of them to have a book of their own will make it possible for them to bring the book home each night and share with their families. This is something we have never been able to do.

My students have shown an interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences.
