My students need book club books to engage, excite, and inspire!
My 32 fourth grade bobcats engage in collaborative learning daily, and feed off of a hands-on, high-energy, and an engaging learning environment. Fourth Grade is a year of not only academic growth, but of exploring your passion and interests. I teach fourth grade in Montgomery County, Maryland. Our small neighborhood school is located just three miles from Washington, D.C. This year, my class is composed of a majority of ESOL, IEP, 504, and emotional needs students. Each child enters the classroom each morning with a smile on their face and ready to learn something new. My students deserve learning opportunities that expose them to the wonderful world of literature and the magic that books contain!
I am a strong believer in putting new, exciting, and engaging texts in the hands of students in order to instill a love of reading. Currently, my school's book room is outdated and covered with a film of dust that needs to be blown off before selecting titles for students to read. I would love to create a fresh new look on reading, and to get my students excited about books.
I dream of creating book clubs in my classroom, in which students can engage in rich literature discussions, while deepening their love of reading in a text of THEIR CHOICE!
So much of what children read in school is dictated by their reading level and curriculum. However, in my eyes, students are so much more than a number! I firmly believe that students should have the opportunity to read "outside of their reading level" in a text that truly calls to them and excites them. Exposing students to rigorous texts helps to elevate student reading comprehension and application of reading skills and strategies. By creating student-selected book clubs, all students in my classroom would have the opportunity to expand their interests of books and to go on a journey through the pages of a book!
