My Students

I have 19 amazing students this year in fourth grade. We have just started to get to know each other as school started last week. I can already tell they are kind and excited to learn. They have been so great adjusting to a whole new learning environment during the hybrid model. They are patient, brave, and enthusiastic. I am already so proud!

My Project

Every week in my classroom, we do something called mentor sentence. Students are introduced to a new book and sentence each week and complete activities which helps them notice things about a particular sentence, label parts of speech, revise the sentence, and imitate it. This really helps them with grammar and writing. There also is a vocabulary piece to it, which helps students in both reading and writing. I would love to have a copy of each of the read aloud books to share with my students. Currently I have to find many of them online. Nothing replaces having your teacher read the physical book to you in their own voice! I would love to be able to do that for my students.
