My Students

My students are in a public school in the suburbs. We are in a graded center, so the students are only in this building for 3 years.

I have the best students!

My students are in grades 3, 4 and 5 and we work daily on reading skills. We are a very diverse group and we learn from each other daily.

We respect one another and meet daily challenges to do our best. We are working on being future leaders and role models in our society.

My Project

My students love to sit around the classroom and read great books. I'm not always able to supply them with the necessary time to complete these stories. I would love to provide them with the opportunity to take the books home to read and enjoy.

Having take home book bags will give my students access to having materials to read and reflect on while outside of the classroom.

These bags will include everything an inquisitive learner needs to pique their reading/writing interest. It will include: journals, smelly or twisty pencils, animal erasers and the most adorable animal book marks, to help my nightly readers keep track of where they end their daily reading adventures.
