My Students

Over 400 K-5th grade students come to my class during the week. They are from all walks of life and bring so many fascinating personalities to my class. My class is the library, where there are worlds of learning waiting for each student. My students are caring, supportive, energetic, quiet, dreamers, readers, and seekers of knowledge. They are compassionate and willing to help others. My favorite thing is when they discover something new (or something that they can do on their own) and they have to tell me about it. Many of our students are always looking for things that can help the learning process.

All students participate in library class regardless of their learning ability.

Most of my classes have between 20-30 students in them. While I am on a fixed schedule, my students are able to flex in when they need something new.

My Project

These books will make excellent additions to the library collection for students to see newer award winning illustrations.

One of our units of study is award winners.

Having newer Caldecott books will allow us to compare these newer ones to the winners from past years. Students will do a picture walk and look critically at the illustrations in award winning books. Criteria will be given to the students about what judges look for when choosing a Caldecott winner. Discussions will be held about why students think the illustrations won the award for best American picture book and whether or not the illustrations match/enhance the text of the story. Students will have the opportunity, if they want to, to choose their favorite style and create a picture of something in their world using the artist’s style.
