My Students

My students come into my class so full of energy and very enthusiastic about the many lessons I have prepared for them. They really enjoy reading books and exploring the text for new vocabulary and meaning. Students love to read books that are on grade level. They also enjoy selecting books that are on their independent levels and books that they can relate to.

My students work really hard to bring up their independent reading levels in our Language Arts class for Accelerated Reading.

My Project

The class sets of books will really be great. The students really enjoy reading, and this would really help them to become better readers.

They enjoy reading books that they can relate to.

These novel sets will be used throughout the school year, and I will incorporate them into the many lessons I have planned. The students will complete book reports, make brochures, and even dress up as their favorite characters in the books to role play the main events of the stories.

The students are really in need of new novel sets because our old books are worn out and have pages missing.
