My Students

I teach third grade in a Native American boarding school. My students come from several reservations across South Dakota and its bordering states.

My students live on campus during the school year.

Most of our students have little or no contact with their families throughout the year.

My students have a strong desire to learn and succeed. They learn best when they can get up and move around. Keeping them involved and using hands-on activities keeps them attentive and on task.

My Project

Many of our students have limited access to books in their homes. This lack of reading material and being read to at home when they were younger impact their love of reading along with being successful readers when they enter school. I would love to instill the love of reading and the enjoyment this can bring to their lives that I had at their age and continue to have as an adult.

Graphic Novels engage the most reluctant readers.

I only have a few of these books that I have brought from home. Graphic Novels are the genre of books my students are drawn to and are excited to read.

Not only do Graphic Novels keep my students engaged as readers, they also engage them as writers. They love to create stories using the Graphic Novel format.

Having the Graphic Novel Science library set and the Graphic Novels third grade set will enhance my students love for reading AND writing and ensure a lifetime of love for reading!
