My Students

Our Coastal Georgia school is a Title I high-poverty school, with over 70% of our students receiving free or reduced price lunch.

Our classroom is filled with twenty-one brilliant third graders who love learning!

We always have fun and exciting things going on in our classroom. We strive to create a positive learning environment. It's important to keep students engaged and intrigued. Learning happens when students are engaged. The lessons in our classroom are designed to meet the needs and interests of all learners.

My Project

Two years ago, fabulous donors made our book club center a reality. I would like my new students to have the same opportunity as the previous classes. The project is Book Club Revisited. One of our literacy centers, Book Club, is dedicated to reading and reflecting. After a child is finished reading a book of their choice, they are able to select activities from a choice board or menu to complete. Some of the activities include making bookmarks, wanted posters, writing letters to the author, and even an opportunity to create a lesson to teach to the class. Not only does book club promote reading, it also promotes independent study. We need supplies such as paper and markers to use in our book club center.

Our book club activities are proudly displayed in the hall for all to see.

Every child loves to participate in book club. With your help, my students can have a plethora of materials (paper, crayons, markers, and colored pencils) to choose from to create their activities!
