My Students

I have a class full of excited readers. My students have a love and a passion for reading! They come to class every morning with a book in hand, ready to continue reading their story. They are really excited about AR this year, we have a ton of rewards they can earn.

My students have a love and a passion for reading!

They are going through the books in our reading center faster than I can replace them. We have students on many different reading levels in our class and we simply just do not have enough books for everyone to keep reading.

My Project

Our current headphones are not really working and it is making it very difficult to hear when my students are trying to take their AR tests. The headphones are constantly being used throughout the day and are falling apart. We really need new and heavy duty headphones.

In order for my students to fully show their reading comprehension, I need new headphones and more AR books.

They are running out of books to read (so exciting for me that they are so eager to read). Some students read 3-4 books a day and have been through our entire classroom library. I am trying to make sure they have a love and a passion for reading so we need to expand our library.

We also need index cards to make flash cards and we are in need of Germ-X and band-aids to keep everyone healthy. We have been through just about our entire supply of Germ-X. With it being cold and flu season, they are constantly blowing noses and sneezing and need to clean their hands to keep from spreading germs.
