My Students

My third-grade​ class is a place of reading, writing, exploring, and learning. Our school serves many military students and my students spend this year learning the foundation of reading to learn new information and apply it to all subjects. Students are constantly learning through different technology resources.

My students are the most amazing group of kids you will ever meet.

We are a class that​ loves to learn with any and every opportunity we are given! We love to learn!

My Project

I am a third-grade teacher, and our class is in desperate need of chapter books. My students love to read, but they are ready to read bigger and better books. With this project, our class would have a new series that will pique their interest and get them excited about reading! They will get the How to Train Your Dragon series, along with a bookshelf to store our new books. These books were chosen based on a student interest survey and by observation of what most third graders are reading. These books will help students become more fluent in reading and find a love for the new series! They cannot wait to receive these new books. Thank you for helping us read more and more!
