My Students

My students live in SC and are between the ages of 8-9. They just entered their 3rd grade year in elementary school. My classroom is made up of 12 girls and 11 boys, who come into the classroom with different reading levels, skills and thoughts about reading.

My students are creative, diverse and enthusiastic classroom citizens .

Some of my students love reading, while others just haven't found their love for reading quite yet. I want to encourage them, foster their learning and help them discover

that books can take you on many adventures!

As emergent readers and early fluent readers, books are important to my students and are truly valued. My classroom library is an essential resource for my students. Many of my students do not have access to books at home and rely on our class library to read high-quality books.

My Project

These books will be an add on to the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that should bring joy to my students. I want to add some high-interest reading material. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
