My Students

My students are curious, energetic middle school English Language Learners growing up in South Los Angeles. They have varied interests and appreciate new books.

My students are struggling readers motivated to improve their English Language skills so that they can reclassify and become fluent English speakers, listeners, readers, and writers!

They all qualify for the free lunch program at our school and their families cannot afford to buy books.

We worked hard last year and my students were so proud of their achievements. It means a lot to my students that people care about them and donate books for their learning and enjoyment.

My Project

These high interest books for our classroom library will help motivate my students to read and understand what they read during their independent reading time.

The "Naruto" book series, "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series, and the "Percy Jackson" series are all books my students already love and want to read more of.

I do not have these books in my classroom library and my students are on long waiting lists at the school library for these books. Often they don't get to read the books they really want to read. My students want to read books that they care about, so they can enjoy reading, increase their reading comprehension levels, and share their books with their friends.

I want to help my students learn to love reading and increase their reading Lexile levels by having high interest books available to them. After students choose and read their independent reading book, they will create video reviews of their books! I'm excited to see what my students come up with!
