My Students

My students are thoughtful, kind, energetic and enthusiastic. They are enthusiastic about learning, but some have developed a love-hate relationship with reading. They need books to draw them into reading and encourage them to read for fun.

My students are reluctant readers and writers.

They are in need of access to books that make them want to read. Ones that draw their attention and guide their writing. They are good kids with wonderful personalities, who are eager to learn all they can.

My Project

Please help provide my students books to help them become better writers. Books like "Word Collector" can open their eyes to new words they may not have known before. It will help them gain a new understanding of text in both, reading and writing. I plan to use books such as "Nerdy Birdy" to help guide students into understanding text on a deeper level, and then use that understanding to help them become better writers than they were before. The books will help them understand the different types of sentences that authors use to write and how that text variety is beneficial to the reader.
