My Students

My first grade class is filled with 25 students who love to learn and explore. One major way we do that as a class is by reading books! Whether they be fiction or nonfiction, our class LOVES books!

With books you can go places, and it is important for my students to have enough books to do so!

Many students in first grade are just learning to read! It is very exciting, and being able to watch the joy on my students' faces when they are able to read a book they love couldn't make me happier!

My Project

Please help my students become successful and enthusiastic readers with specially selected books for every reading level! These books are ideal for both guided reading and independent reading making it easy to provide differentiated instruction to meet every student’s specific needs.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently.

Not only will these books help my students this year, they will help students for years to come!

I am looking forward to being able to give my students these new resources that will help them become lifelong readers.
