My Students

At my school, we have a very diverse group of students who come from all different backgrounds. That is what makes our school so great! The students at my school are wonderful children who love to learn. They are very curious about learning and love to read all day long! We are always looking for new ways to help each of our students find their passion for learning. Please help our students get the full experience of learning that each child should receive every day!

My Project

Who doesn't love diving into a good book? What if you didn't have many books to read? Well this fits my students. They unfortunately don't have many books in the classroom library and have to read the same books over and over again.

My students have a passion for reading and I want to feed that passion!

These books would provide so many different types of learning. They will provide different lessons that I can use to teach different reading strategies such as, visualizing, compare and contrast, inferring, etc. The possibilities are endless when students have so many books to read!
