My Students

My students are an incredible group of fun, loving second graders. They have spunk and personality and make coming to school each day such a treat! Our class is made up of a very diverse group of amazing kids that love and respect one another. We work hard all year and have a great time learning together.

This dedicated group of students is truly a school family.

We love and support one another so that we can all grow and learn in a fun-loving and engaging place.

My Project

As a teacher of literacy, I have the opportunity to transform the lives of the children in my classroom. The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom Book Clubs Collection provides an authentic opportunity for children to apply many of the literacy behaviors and understandings that they have learned through other instructional contexts: thinking within, beyond, and about the text; listening and understanding; interacting socially; engaging in extended discussions; and more. As they bring together much of their learning in this one context, children develop a sense of agency.

Fountas and Pinnell Book Clubs will give my students the experience of exchanging ideas with their peers and co-constructing richer understandings of texts in a genuinely rewarding way.

The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom Book Clubs Collection includes 32 titles organized into eight text sets, allowing me to conduct book clubs throughout the school year. The books in each text set are connected by genre, theme, topic, author, or illustrator. The books also relate to titles in other instructional contexts, such as Interactive Read-Aloud, Shared Reading, and Independent Reading, allowing children to make connections among texts throughout our classroom. A discussion card is included for each Book Club title for me to support discussion with groups of readers.

Help me support my students on their path to becoming independent lifelong learners!
