My Students

This is my very first year in the fourth grade. For my entire teaching career, I have always taught fifth grade. This year we are changing things up and I couldn't be more excited. My fourth graders are full of energy and a love for reading. I need to freshen up my classroom library in order to keep up with my ever-evolving bibliophiles. Having taught 5th grade my entire career, I am in need of age-appropriate novels for my new students.

My Project

Having moved down to fourth grade, my classroom library is in serious need of a makeover. Reading should not be presented as a chore, but offered as a gift. Please help give my students the chance to explore new and exciting genres. Book choices tell us a lot about our students. Help me learn about their interests and dreams for the future by creating a library that has a variety rich in literature, from sports to make believe. The novels will be used for individual reading, read aloud, and book club. Help me spark a love for books inside my students.
