My Students

Our class of 4th graders is a bunch of eager learners! They are curious about everything and are constantly asking questions. They love to look up information to further their learning.

Our class discusses books and characters like they are our friends!

One of our students said she couldn't fall asleep the night before because she was so curious about a choice a character was going to make in the book we were reading aloud. These students do some of their best learning sitting in our classroom library sharing their thoughts.

My Project

Curious learners make the best learners! And our class sure does have curious learners! What better way to get information and stories at your fingertips than to have a superb classroom library! We are proud of our library in our classroom. I would love to teach my students to take care of books and respect books by giving them beautiful homes. Also, students will want to take responsibility for keeping our classroom library organized.

A visually appealing library makes students want to read!

By organizing our library in matching bins with matching labels, our students will respect books and be invited to learn.
