My Students

I am a first year teacher just starting up my classroom. I have 12 wonderful kindergarteners who I have enjoyed getting to know since starting in January. The many personalities shine through and make our class something special. I believe at this age especially, loving books is so important! I have books that were donated to me, but not many popular authors for this age group. I would love to add more books to make our classroom library more special for my students!

My Project

I am a first year teacher that is lacking in my classroom library. I had family and friends donate some books they had, but other than that I had nothing to go on. There are some that my students do love, but only a few truly spark that interest! It is hard when there’s only a few they all love to share between the whole class! At this age, choice is so important to start the spark for reading. Help give my library the much needed upgrade that it needs to help my students learn to love reading at this young age!
