My Students

Our students are respectful, responsible, on-task winners!

I am teaching the same group of students this year!

I am so excited to see where we can go next with our reading skills! All students are different and the teachers and I work hard to meet the needs of every learner in our building. The first few weeks of school we will complete learning goals to guide our learning and so the children can help build the type of environment that will help them learn best!

We are a Title I school and have a high population of students who receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

My project contains some really great titles. Every class is different and my class loves books that are full of humor and strong characters. My students have found series of books that they can relate to and that they can't wait to get their hands on!

There are many exciting things about the halfway mark of the school year, but student's growth in reading is one of my favorites!

I know that a series of books such as the biography must-haves Who was Laura Ingles Wilder and Who was Thomas Edison bring delight their faces as soon as we open the box. Students are always asking for books and I hear from their parents how much they love to read! I couldn't ask for more as their teacher.
