My Students

My students may look small but they have HUGE imaginations and eargerness to learn. They come to school everyday ready to open their minds to new ideas and topics. They love to explore in their own academic journey. They express their thoughts and feelings through drawing detailed pictures and sounding out words to make brilliant stories.

One of the best times of our day is being able to explore learning through reading.

My students LOVE to choose a book, find somewhere in the class to read, and disappear into their story. They let the words of their books take them to another place.

Since our class is filled with lower income students ya many of them aren’t able to pick up a book at home and go to that other place. This is why it’s so important in our class. I want them to be able to have flexible seating during independent reading time so they are able to be comfortable and relaxed. This will help them to continue to love to read.

My Project

The supplies I am requesting for my students will help grow our library and allow for flexible seating in our classroom. These seats will not only be used during classroom library time, but also during independent work time and in the calm down corner.

I believe giving students a choice is extremely important in their education.

This not only will help them later in life to make choices but it also allows them to take ownership of their learning. It helps them assess how they learn best and most comfortable. It also makes them feel important and powerful to be able to choose their own seat to grow their knowledge in.

The leveled books will be used in our classroom library for all of the students to share. As the year progresses so do the students reading levels. I want to make sure that they have new fresh books to choose during library time. This will get them excited to read and also excited to better their reading to progress to a new and higher level.
