My Students

My students come from a wide variety of socio-economic backgrounds. I teach at a Title I school, where a large portion of my students struggle with living in poverty. They find school as a safe, inviting place, where all of their needs including physical, emotional, social, and academic needs can be met.

My students are very enthusiastic, eager, and active learners.

They all have a wide range of learning styles and need teaching methods that are adjusted to their personal needs. I find that my students function the best in a learning environment that is highly engaging, and where active learning is taking place.

My Project

This project would provide my classroom with over 30 books to incorporate the reading program Rooted into Reading in my classroom. This program promotes exposing children to high-quality children's literature and integrating beginning reading skills into reading aloud. These books will ensure that my students can explore grade level standards while learning to enjoy reading.

All the books in this project will help my students as they explore story elements such as plot, setting, character traits, and sequencing.

This project would have a monumental effect on my classroom as it would ensure that I have the books available to start this new, engaging, and challenging reading curriculum.
