My Students

My class is full of energetic kindergarteners who are full of imagination and wonder. Nothing brings out their imagination more than getting lost in book that takes them to far away lands, interacting with animals or traveling through space!

"You can find magic where ever you look, sit back and relax, all you need is a book" - Dr Seuss.

They are learning to become independent readers by reading books based on their guided reading level that gives them the confidence to continue reading. Reading levels in my class range and a complete, and fully stocked library is an essential part of any classroom. Students use the library to choose books for independent reading during the week, as well as to take books home for reading. However, our library can use a batch of new and fun books for my students to indulge in.

My Project

My students are learning to become independent readers by reading books based on their guided reading levels. Reading books that are "just right" for them give them the confidence to continue reading. reading levels in my class range and a complete and fully stocked library is an essential part of my classroom. Students use the library to choose books to read for independent reading time each day, as well as taking books home to read to their families. However, our classroom library needs updating with new and exciting books for my students to continue to acquire a love for reading.
