Read. Set. Read!

Help me give my students a variety of books to let their minds go on new adventures and continue to inspire their love of reading.

My Students

I love that my students are fun, outgoing, and each have their own unique personalities and interests. My kiddos love to be challenged and make learning fun.

Within my classroom, I strive to always make reading fun and engaging and encourage students love of reading.

My students love to find books that interest them and dive into projects that keep them interested and engaged.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy. They complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.
