My Students

I teach in a special education classroom with 12 students. All of my students have differing needs, but they all have one thing in common... they love to read! In my classroom, I promote reading and give as much independent reading time as possible. My students get so excited when new books are introduced and read aloud. They cannot wait until I finish them to get their hands on them and explore them for themselves!

The students in my class are curious, helpful, compassionate, and warmhearted.

As students that receive special education services and English language services, books are SO important in my classroom. The classroom library is a place that my students look forward to visiting everyday. Each day I am asked, if we received any new books as my class wants to check out every book!

My Project

These books will be used for the next two upcoming reading units for my second grade class- Nonfiction Reading & Book Series books! My students love to read and want new and exciting books to read! With this project, my students will get all new books. The multiple copies of the same book will help my students with partner reading and being able to talk about a book with another student.

I cannot wait to see my student's faces when these books arrive in our classroom!

I aim for my students to have the same love of reading and learning as I do!
