My Students

Welcome to Ms. J’s classroom! I teach students having a multitude of special needs and, unfortunately, most of my students struggle with reading. Most of my students come to school with little to no reading confidence. Without a school library, they have limited reading material to choose from.

At my school and within my classroom, I work hard to create a positive learning environment the fosters a love for reading.

I try to help motivate our students to find books that interest them, but they are limited. My students are excited when I show them different books available that match their interest or bring in books from the local library. I also incorporate a variety of reading programs online to help keep them motivated and expand their interest in reading.

Everyone needs a good book! Reading is essential to fostering the imagination and the interest of students. My students will benefit from reading new books in so many ways! New books and subscriptions to Scholastic News magazine would help my students build a variety of reading and writing skills that they are currently struggling with and, as a result, build their overall reading confidence. My goal is that my students develop a love for reading which will last a lifetime!

My Project

Most of my students come school with little to no reading confidence, and, without a school library, they have a limited supply of reading material to choose from.

The majority of my students live on the south side of Chicago.

My school is a low-income charter school with the majority of our students being African American and Hispanic. They are in 3rd through 5th grades. I teach reading for two hours to each grade level and my students rotate to another classroom for their other core subjects.

Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
