My Students

My students are a young and curious group of students. Each student brings a positive attitude and a smile to my class everyday. They love to learn and are always wanting more books to read. My students use the classroom library daily.

My Project

These materials will allow my students to learn new vocabulary, concepts and reinforce their learning. Reading everyday is so important to helping students grow academically. During our phonics instruction, students are expected to read independently in stations. With these materials, every student would be able to have a plethora of books to choose from and really learn some interesting information. It is so important that these kids have the materials needed to enrich their minds. I believe that students should have the chance to read silently or with a partner everyday. With this project, we could accomplish this.
