My Students

My students are explorers, mathematicians, scientists, and authors! They love to learn and experience the world around them through hands-on activities.

My students are enthusiastic, fun-loving, and energetic learners!

They are learning to make smart choices and to solve their own problems. They love to teach each other and to work together to meet their learning goals.

Some of the students in my class and throughout our school site may be currently experiencing homelessness. They do not have access to many basic learning supplies away from the classroom.

My students are always active and engaged in learning. They learn best when they are actively participating in their own learning. This project will help our class do just that!

My Project

My students need access to more books at their reading level. Our class loves the Pete the Cat series and the Biscuit books!

Can you help me provide my young readers with books that will thrill them and entice them to read more?

My students will be able to read these books each day in the classroom. They love to read aloud, read silently and read to one another. Can you help me give my students access to quality literature that will engage them in reading?

My class is made up of six and seven year olds who are so excited to read! They devour books as soon as they see a new one. They will be thrilled to have new, exciting books to read in class! We are becoming readers!
