My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "Who is the best class in the whole world?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach at a low-income/high poverty school district where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

These leveled guided reading books will continue to help students dive into reading. During guided reading, students learn to read at their own reading level. These books will provide opportunity for all students to be successful at reading and provide opportunities for them to read, not only in the classroom but at home. 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. My students love Henry and Mudge books and Nate the Great books. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these leveled guided reading books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.

Chocolate Fever and Lemonade War will continue to boost my student’s interest in reading.
