My Students

Our school is in a rural setting. The school is a Title I school and our funds for supplies are limited. My classroom encourages a sense of community and security.

I am so thrilled to join the 5th grade team and to teach 5th grade for the first time!

I have taught 1st and 3rd grades, and I look forward to teaching a new age group!

As a creative individual, I want to enhance their passions for creativity. I would like to provide my students with interactive experiences to create new background knowledge for their future!

My Project

Have you ever read along with someone as they read aloud? This project is to make that possible for my students as we study the novel Because of Mr. Terupt. We have started a novel study about characters and point of view, which this book is full of those aspects.

I purchased one copy of this book, but it would be absolutely wonderful to have a copy in each child's hand during class.

This class set will be used by many students during several different ELA class periods. These 5th graders enjoy reading books like this one. I would love to make this possible for them to read along!
