My Students

My classroom is filled with 20 amazing students. Every morning, they overcome the obstacles they face and walk into school with smiles on their faces; most greet me with big hugs. We are a Title I school with the best students.

My students are happy and excited to come to school because we have created a classroom that makes learning fun and interactive.

They are always eager to get to work right away and they work so hard, but would benefit greatly from some additional supplies.

My Project

My students absolutely love reading! It's their favorite center.

The idea of going into the library and picking out a book with their favorite characters keeps them going back for more.

The books in this project are their favorite characters. These books would complete our Mo Willems collection as we only have a few of them. They strive to read every single one of the Piggie and Elephant books as well as the Knufflebunny and Pigeon books. These characters have become parts of our classroom. They make us smile, they make us laugh, and I (their teacher) tend to make some really funny voices while reading them.
