Readers for Life

My students need books that will allow them to engage in all subject matter that we teach in third grade and will keep them coming back for more!

My Students

Do you remember what it was like to get a taste of something and then have lingering questions such as "what if" or "why?" and "what about..." ? Providing my students with ways to answer these questions will help feed their love for learning!

My classroom is located in a small town in North Carolina.

My students have a wide range of personalities, background knowledge, and socioeconomic backgrounds. They all share a love for learning and have diverse learning styles. Each student is unique in what they bring to the class as a whole and truly deserve the best resources that are available.

My Project

I am trying to motivate each and every one of my students to love reading. I want them to see that reading takes place in all subject areas whether it be in math, science, or being able to find their new favorite author. These books will allow me to provide better reading material and inspiration to teach the Common Core and Essential Standards to my students in the most creative way possible. The books that I have chosen will reach students that I may not have reached otherwise.

With your help students will continue to be inspired to ask questions and become lifelong learners.

My hopes are that these books will spark new interests and allow students to see the endless possibilities that can be unlocked by having a love for reading!
