My Students

Located in beautiful, rural, Lake County, CA we love to learn and learn in engaging ways not just doing worksheets. Having hands on experiences helps to reinforce what we are learning

We are a wonderful, creative, and diverse group of seven and eight year olds who love to explore and learn.

My students come from a rural, high - needs community. There are few opportunities for my students to experience extracurricular activities. As diverse as my students backgrounds are they also are a very diverse academic group. I have students who are still mastering basic reading and writing skills, letter recognition; and students who are reading above a third grade reading level.

My Project

My students have a growing love for books and reading that I want to foster. They are excited when we are able to read and try to explore our classroom library. For many of my students this is the first year that they are able to read independently and the are excited to have books to select from.

The shelves and baskets will allow my students to easily access books that are at their own reading level to read independently.

They will be able to see what is in each basket, and where to put the book back when they are done reading it, to select books that are of interest to them and at their level. Providing my students with the opportunity to read more is the best way to increase their reading ability.
