My Students

I teach for the School District of Philadelphia. Funding can be limited, and I would like to provide the best tools for instruction for my future students and learning readers!

I have a new third grade class this year with very diverse learners and reading interests!

I have learned that even children who hate to read, if they have books they are interested in, they will read for extended periods of time! It is all about knowing and learning your student's interests.

My Project

I have an amazing third grade class! I am a teacher for the School District of Philadelphia, and any chance I get to get new books I take! I am a lover of reading and want to teach my students to be the same way. All of these books I am asking for are books my students picked out themselves and are dying to read! When students read independently, it not only builds their confidence, it builds their stamina and reading level. If my students have books of interest, this will help them accomplish all of these goals!

My students all have very different interests in reading and love all different genres.

Helping me fill my shelves will allow my students to come to school every day and get lost in their favorite books!
