My Students

First graders are in the beginning stages of reading. Students in my grade level are eager to learn and need reading materials tailored to their reading levels. They are inquisitive readers that want to learn about new adventures and new information through informational text.

We have parents that are willing to read with their students at home, but we need to provide them with books at their child's reading level.

They need this opportunity to assist their child in becoming the fluent reader they need to be in order to be successful in school.

My Project

This project will provide students with books that they will be able to use in the classroom to practice their reading fluency and comprehension. Students will also take these books home to read with family and friends. Providing students with the necessary materials at home is essential to their success in the classroom and beyond.

Students get excited about reading when they are provided with materials that are right for their ability level.

They love having the option of reading fiction and nonfiction texts. Learning is made fun for all levels of instruction within the classroom and reinforced at home.
