My Students

Our students are respectful, responsible, on-task winners!

This year we have a focus on building character.

All students are different and the teachers and I work hard to meet the needs of every learner in our building. The first few weeks of school we will complete learning goals to guide our learning and so the children can help build the type of environment that will help them learn best!

We are a Title I school and have a high population of students who receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

We are half way through our school year and reading is taking off like a rocket. The books that I've chosen for this project are books that my students have requested. They have started series of books and are BEGGING for the next ones in the series. It is a fantastic feeling as a teacher and I want to give each group their choice in books. The Branches Book Series from Scholastic is so great for first graders because they are still able to get plot development and great vocabulary with picture support and engagement. The Bad Guys Series is another home run hit in my room. My students would be so excited to add these titles to our classroom library and be able to continue their journeys with the next books in a series they have fallen in love with!
