My Students

My students love to read and love experiencing new things through books. One of the favorite sayings in our classroom is a Dr. Seuss quote, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

I teach a group of lively, energetic, friendly, loving, and driven third graders.

My students come to school ready to learn and excited to be there. Many of my students face challenges at home and thoroughly enjoy being at school to experience new things. My students love to read and love to experience new places through books. Many of my students come from a single parent household and do not get to travel as much as they would like. Through books my students are able to travel all around the world and learn about new places.

My Project

My classroom is full of diverse learners who all love to experience adventures through books. With these books my students will be able to read books on their reading level, including Nate the Great, Junie B. Jones, and Young Cam Jansen, and become more confident readers. Many students in my class do not have books at home and love coming to school to read. Having books that my students are able to read on their reading level will help them become stronger readers. These books will allow us to complete literature studies, and for the students in my class to discuss and share with each other new things they are learning through reading.

Donations to this project will change my students' lives in many ways.

Many of my students are reading significantly below grade level and are craving books to read on their reading level. Donations to this project will allow my students to work together to solve problems and read. My students work very hard in school and want to do their best, having books they can be successful with will give them the motivation they need to continue working hard.
