My Students

My students come from all around a bustling city with a lot diversity and many different cultures. My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

My students are eager to learn and are ready to do so everyday.

They love sharing new ideas, creating, and learning through projects and play.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy. They love finding new books to dive into. Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. I have watched them read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading.

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

Students are also able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time. 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 printed word.
