My Students

I have a class of 21 1st graders that love learning and especially love finding a quiet spot to read. They are the sweetest and most creative group of kids that I have worked with. Some of my students are reading on a 3rd-4th grade level while others are still learning how to decode text. Having students who are at such different levels makes it fun, but also challenging.

They know when to be serious and do their work, but they also know when I turn on the music that it's time to wiggle and be silly.

As much enthusiasm as they have for school, they have suffered some loss and had a crazy school year. Being out of school for 23 school days (due to Hurricane Florence and its immense damage on our classroom) affected my students in so many ways. Being able to get back into a routine and a feeling of safety in the classroom has helped them so much.

My Project

Thinking about the supplies I need the most for my classroom was not hard at all: leveled readers for my 1st graders. The books I have chosen for my project will help tremendously in my classroom from progress monitoring students' reading levels to small group intervention.

They should have a book in front of them that is not going to frustrate or deflate them, but instead a book that will build them up and give them confidence in reading.

With these leveled books for my classroom library I hope to do just that. My students range from a Kindergarten reading level all the way up to a 3rd grade reading level, so this is something that will be used by every student in the classroom! It will give them the opportunity to explore different topics, but also help them build their reading skills along the way.
