The first-grade students in my classroom are a wonderful group of students who come from many different backgrounds and environments. Our school is a rural, Title I school in east Tennessee. Nearly 60 percent of the students who attend our school are economically disadvantaged. My students are eager to learn and discover new things. They are active and they each learn in a different way. I strive to provide my students with a fun and engaging education that will encourage them to love learning!
Learning to become a confident reader is an exciting part of 1st grade. Each year, I strive to help my students become fluent readers and help them develop a love of reading.
My students always fall in love with Mo Willems' popular, "Elephant & Piggie" book series.
These books never fail to build my students' confidence in their ability to read and enjoy books. They will read them over and over again and enjoy it each time they do. This carpet will be the perfect addition to our classroom. It will help me create a cozy book nook for my growing readers.
