My Students

Oakdale is a Title I school filled with kids who love books! Students in this building are kind, energetic and excited to learn. They love books and they are overjoyed when they are gifted a new book from a teacher or staff member in our building. Many students are lacking in books and need more books to fill their homes. As a teacher in this building it is my goal to increase reading and a love for reading in my students.

A love of reading is a philosophy we treasure in our building and providing students with books for home allows students to carry this love of reading over to their homes.

Our students spend each day hearing wonderful stories and cannot wait for the moment their teacher will be reading to them. It is our goal that reading will not stop at our doors, but carry over to the bus ride home all the way to snuggling in with a good book at bedtime.

My Project

Oakdale will be handing out books to all of our students at the end of the school year for summer reading. Our goal is to fill homes with more books for kids to enjoy. Students are so energized and excited to be given new books to have and treasure as they leave our doors for their summer vacations.

Smiles will creep over kids faces as they walk into the gym at the end of the school year with piles of books waiting to be chosen and taken home!

Each student at Oakdale will leave our building with books in hand for summer reading. This summer reading will help students grow as readers even when school is not in session.

Reading is an essential skill children will be learning this year. It builds a foundation for all other learning and it is most importantly a time to get lost in the learning, daydreaming and adventures that books provide. As students become stronger readers they become more successful in school, build self-confidence and learn what a gift a good book can be.
