My Students

When my students come through the door each morning, they are excited to get to their spot and get busy! These kids amaze me with how ready they are to learn each day.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds.

This is why I love my school so much! In fact, there are around 20 languages spoken in our building. Many students also come from low socio-economic homes and our school is able to assist with food, clothing, school supplies, and other things these families need. Despite any hardships, these kids come in excited about their learning.

My Project

In our classroom, reading is our favorite part of the day! My students have spent this year diving into my class library and reading any and every book that interests them. We need more high interest books so that students can maintain this excitement about reading!

Every book in this project has been selected by my students as a book that they would be excited to read.

My class and I carefully selected books that not only peak student interest, but also will help my students grow and meet their reading goals. We have selected a variety of chapter books, everybody books, funny books, nonfiction books, and realistic books. We would all be thrilled to have these books join our classroom!
