My Students

I am so excited to facilitate the learning in a class of students who enjoy reading. I am a part of a Title I district where I have the pleasure of "hanging" with 4th graders all day. Our 4th grade class is comprised of general education students who range from Kindergarten to 4th grade reading ability and skill. I am already seeing their progress. I believe in setting high expectations and creating oppportunities for them to progress towards them and they are doing an amazing job. Did I mention, it's only September!!! They are making gains and I am excited! While we focus on several things in our classroom, one of them is buidling reading stamina while enjoyiing great books.

My Project

Our time with books is vital. While we have been able to accumulate a pretty awesome book collection, I would like to enhance their reading experience by adding more comfy items like body pillows, bedrest pillows and bean bags.

They enjoy sprawling out in the classroom during our independent reading time and they will be able to do just that with the cool pillows and comfy items to add to their journey through the pages.

This is a time of relaxation and adventure. I love the giggles from a reader while reading realistic fiction -- they get it. While others might be intrigued by the facts shared in a nonfiction text. When the bell sounds and they grumble because they selected an amazing piece and have to out it down until next time is a win-win. I have engaged readers who are building their stamina while enjoying a great journey.
