My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Almost all of my students would say that our classroom library is their favorite place in our room; it is where we gather to share successes and findings from our reading.

I treat each book, read aloud, and share as a gift, and make sure my students see my own love of literature to help inspire them as readers.

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 alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

My Project

We absolutely love Pioneer Valley books in my first-grade classroom. We have been very fortunate to add a selection of titles to our leveled library this year, and my students have continued to request more titles and levels because of how much they love the texts! The quality, durability, and variety of Pioneer Valley books are incredible, and my students clearly gravitate towards them when compared to other non-fiction titles in our classroom.

The Explore the World Non-fiction pack includes 68 titles ranging from levels A-Q, which will help ensure that every reader in my classroom has access to 12 different texts at their level.

For my earliest readers, it is often difficult to find non-fiction texts that meet our needs in regards to text features and subject matter. With titles like 'A Season of Trees', 'How to Grow A Carrot', 'Dinosaurs and Fossils', and 'All About Cars', students will be able to learn about topics that tie into both our Science and Social Studies standards for learning as well!

I know these books will make a positive impact on my students for years to come, and I look forward to being able to share them with others in my grade level as well!
