My Students

Hello! This year I have a group of incredibly kind, caring, and eager to learn third-grade students. I have a small group of students who range in ability and come from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Although they have their differences, they have come together to create a supportive classroom environment in which learning does happen.

My students make our classroom a community.

They are eager to learn from one another and befriend those in need. If you ask for help, you'll soon be swarmed by a dozen smiling faces ready to lend a helping hand. My students go out of their way to help those who need it and I would love to help them by providing tools that can enhance their learning by allowing them to become more engaged and active scholars.

My Project

Reading a good book should be relaxing! However, nothing is relaxing if you don't have a well organized area to store those great books in or a comfortable place to sit and read them. The book bins will allow me to organize books by topic and level. For example, books about the moon that I am adding to the collection will go together as will all books on growth mindset. The rug will add to the welcoming feel of the library nook with its bright colors, drawing students in! I would love for my students to have an area in the classroom that fosters their love of reading. An inviting classroom library with a great selection of books makes a huge difference in students' desire to read independently.

As a teacher, I want my students to experience the joys of reading and to share their love of reading with others.

Thank you for supporting my students and their love of reading! These new additions to our classroom library will impact how often students are reading in the library and choosing a book out of our ever-growing library!
