My Students

Our school resides in an urban area in Los Angeles, CA. We believe in providing every student the opportunity to be well-rounded in academics, arts, and athletics. We also believe in a community to help support our school through the dedication of all students, staff, and parents.

I have a total of 31 5th grade students.

Of those 31, 10 are English learners, 2 receives resource services, and 5 are in speech. Although there are some setbacks, my students are all invigorating and caring. Their unique and quirky personalities really let them shine. Moreover, they love to learn and they absolutely love reading and math.

My Project

We are requesting books for our classroom library. Our titles include Unplugged,After the Fall (How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again), The Bad Seed, The Dog Man series and more. These books will make a difference in my students' learning by allowing our classroom to be print-rich. I dream to have a classroom library where it serves as an area for students to be able to dive in and explore the endless possibilities of reading. All of these books have been chosen carefully by me with my students in mind. After about two months of knowing them, I am sure my students will be thrilled to have these books in our classroom.

These books will allow my students to continue enjoy independent reading time during reader's workshop and Daily 5.

Moreover, they will be able to choose from a variety of books and be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase the reading level is to read more, and these books will definitely help my students enrich their experiences to become stronger readers.
