My Students

My students are curious and creative. We are one of two third-grade classes in the school. Our school has over 300 students. Many of our students come from low-income families and receive free lunch. Despite a lack of resources both at home and at school, my students work hard and enjoy learning.

My students are active learners!

They love to get up and move around while learning. I am constantly thinking of new ways to keep my students engaged in their learning.

My Project

The books I am requesting will help keep my students excited about reading. My students are diverse and unique and need to see characters that are both like them and different from them. Kids learn so much from books. With a variety of character cultures, genders, and ages, these books will help my students learn about the world and people around them. These new books will help keep my students motivated to read. Student choice is an important part of reading development. I know my students will be thrilled to have a variety of books to choose from and listen to.
