Let Me Tell You A Tale...

My students need sets of Junie B. Jones, The Magic Tree House, Judy Moody, and books to help encourage reading on a daily basis.

My Students

I come from a Title 1 school where many of the students come from a low income and move from place to place. These student have learned how to adapt to a world where their environment is constantly changing. Many students do not have access to good books at home because of their situations.

Our students come from a warm and inviting school that gives students a place where they feel stable and secure.

Grades 3-5 are gender-based classrooms and I teach an all girl class. I want to provide these young ladies with rich, popular books that they are not able to get their hands on as easily.

My Project

The books that I have chosen are books that have been in high demand and usually have the kids waiting on a long list in the library to get their hands on. These books have relatable characters that my students can connect with and encourages them to share their enjoyment of reading with others.

I don't ever want my students to fear reading.

I want it to be a favorite hobby or subject; I want it to be something they look forward to everyday. I want them to be eager to continue to read on their own to learn new things.
