My Students

I love how excited my students are to learn. They are always asking questions and wanting to learn more. They are kind to each other and support their fellow classmates no matter what. They are so helpful and they are true leaders in training. My students help each other find page numbers, log onto computers, help each other with learning. My students are in low income bracket, who also have bilingual parents. Some of these students have no books at home so I provide books to be taken home to read.

My Project

Having these six updated leveled book collections in my library will enhance students love for reading. We have independent reading time, read to self and read to someone in my classroom. Each student will be able to pick just right books for themselves and enjoy reading them around the room.

I would love to bring newer books for their enjoyment, since my books are old.

My objective is to instill a love for reading and then have them become lifelong readers and leaders of our society. I would love these updated books to keep their attention and have them fully enjoy reading them.
