My Students

My students walk in my classroom everyday ready to learn and eager to work hard. This school is a great school where students and parents feel welcome. My students come from a mix of backgrounds, from high income to low income where parents work more than one job. They are such a sweet class and do their best to work hard and love learning new things. My students love to read but I do not have the newest books that students are interested in these days.

I am a third year teacher so I do not yet have a lot of materials for my students.

My students need more reading material in my classroom so that they can find books they are interested in and increase their reading abilities. I want my students to go to my class library and be able to find new books that will inspire my students to read. I want to increase my students reading scores and I believe that I will be able to do this by increasing how much my students read in the classroom.

My Project

These books will make a difference in my students' learning because they will want to read more. The books I have chosen are books that my students are interested in and want to read. Books can take you to another world and change the way we see things.

Reading is such an essential skill to have because it is a skill used throughout life.

In second grade students build that skill up so that they can read anything they want and enjoy it.

Finding that book to hook students into reading is why I have chosen these books. My students are eager to read and I want to have those books to help them get hooked even more.
