My Students

Do you remember getting lost in your first novel, with a mind full of fantasy and wonder? Then you look to your teacher to see what will be the next world that you can explore, full of hope. Only to discover your teacher only has novels that have ripped pages or books that you have already read.

My students are members of an elementary school that works with students from a low social-economical area.

However, this does not stop their thirst for knowledge or discovery. Some of my students have not yet discovered which books will ignite their passion for reading. I hope that each student will experience that magical moment when they fall in love with reading and discover their favorite type of book.

My Project

My students need books such as The Magic Tree House, and leveled library sets. These precious materials will be placed at the front of our third grade classroom, where our library is located. In each subject, once my students are finished with their work they are allowed to pull out a novel of their choice out to read. Once finished, they also complete a book report to share their adventure with their classmates and teacher.

This project could be the difference of my students discovering or furthering their love of reading.

It will give them an opportunity to experience texts that they may not have access to at home, such as nonfiction books. Even if this project and novels cause just one of my students to rekindle their love of books, it is worth it to this third grade teacher.
