My Students

I love the energy that my students bring to our room. They are determined to be their best every single day. Watching them grow and learn this year has been a pleasure. My students never fail to bring a smile to my face and brighten my day. I appreciate their sweet and sassy insights, and I am always blown away by how much they take in during a lesson. I always end up learning something right along with them, which is very neat.

My Project

It is no secret that reading takes practice. In our classroom, we have tried to foster a love for reading by first starting with picture books. Picture books allow students to instantly practice the skill that we are studying each week. I would like to adopt the "picture book a day" practice. By reading a common book to the class, we are building classroom community and solidifying our understanding of the skillls covered in class.

These books will foster a love for reading and provide a foundation for the skills that are covered in class.

The longer stories will build reading stamina and encourage students to practice what they have already learned this year.
