My Students

My students are eager to learn, willing to try new things and ideas in the classroom. They love challenges and works very hard in class.

By developing their reading skills it will help them be successful not only in the classroom but also in life.

They love to read different kinds of books, genre and excited to learn new information from the books being presented to them. They share their experiences, background knowledge and connect to the stories we read in class.

My Project

We are requesting guided reading materials which will be very helpful for my students' reading experience during guided reading time. It will help my students improve and develop reading skills by reading independently, silently and fluently. It encourages students to think critically and use their prior knowledge to make connections to the story they are reading. It enables the students to have a conversations about the text.

By providing my students variety of reading materials it gives them the opportunity to become wide readers using the collection of books presented to them.

It will improve their reading level and develop the love for reading.
