My Students

I teach a very energetic and eager to learn 1st grade class! My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds. They come to school each day seeking love, security, and learning.

Although many of my students come from difficult home lives, they are extremely bright and eager to learn.

The majority of my students come from low income homes and about 95 percent of them receive free lunch. I spend an enormous amount of my own money to ensure they have what they need.

My Project

These books will help encourage my students to read more and hopefully create a love for reading! My school uses the Accelerated Reading Program and my students love earning their AR points! They are required to take at least one test a week, but my students beg to read more books to earn more points.

These books will add more of a variety to my classroom library and give my students more choices of books on their reading level.

My students are so eager to read they are flying through my library now!

I chose these books with my student's interest in mind. These books will allow them to choose books that they will enjoy reading while reading on their level.
