My Students

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and personalized goals and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn. I love watching them grow throughout the year!

My Project

With our new reading curriculum, students are to read a particular genre for an extended period of time. The materials for this project are crucial for the success of this. I need to start organizing my classroom library in sections. I would like to have a fiction section and nonfiction section. Beyond that I would like to break it down into even more specific genres such as mystery, biography, graphic novels, poetry, etc.

The bookcase with reading nook will allow me to start organizing in a way that is meaningful to my students while also providing a comfortable place to read and work.

I want my students to be able to easily find what they are looking for in our classroom library. These tools will be very helpful for me to reach my end goal.
