My Students

My students are eager to learn and want to succeed. Many of them do not receive much support or have many resources at home to be very successful, so it's my job to provide that for them at school. Overall, my class is full of very visual learners who love to read new books and enjoy playing a variety of learning games. These resources will go a long way to making sure that my students have a fun and engaging school year!

My Project

I’m looking to add some new books to my collection that I know my students will enjoy listening to as a class! We will read and discuss these together, as well as pull out reading skills in each of the books! Read aloud time is one of my favorite times of the day and my students always love seeing new books! The shelves will help display our current read aloud books in the classroom! Your help will bring these books and resources to my students to make their school year that much more special! We appreciate any help you are able to give!
