My Students

I teach 20 third grade students in a 100% free and reduced lunch Title I school. Despite my students being below grade level in reading and math, they are always excited to come to school and love to take on the challenges that come with each new topic or subject that is brought to them.

I want to create a classroom environment that is nurturing, engaging, and a place students can thrive!

I would like the opportunity to provide this experience by making sure my students have all the materials and supplies that will help them grow as learners and help them continue to develop and grow their love of learning.

My Project

I am looping up to third grade with my AMAZING class! I want to be ready for my excited group of learners and continue to help them grow through this very important year. Many of my books are geared towards 1st and 2nd reading levels and I want to provide my class with books that are on their reading level. My class has grown to love reading and I would love to keep that momentum going. Something else that my classroom library is lacking is diverse characters in chapter books.

With these new, diverse books, my students will be able to choose a story that reflects their background.

My students are very diverse, and unfortunately my classroom library does not reflect this. It is so important for children to see themselves in stories. This helps the students feel empowered. Please help me fill my library with diverse chapter books to engage my new 3rd graders!
