My Students

Every year my new crop of students seem to amaze me with their vibrance and love of learning. Currently I will have twenty-seven second grade students in my class which will most likely be closer to 30 by mid year as we were last year with overcrowding and a booming population. The staff, students and parents are amazing at Ponderosa and are very supportive!

I have a very diverse group of students that walk into my classroom every year.

We have a Deaf and Hard of Hearing program at our school as well as preschool for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. All these programs build success and make our school unique.

My Project

I am thrilled to bring the excitement and exploration of non-fiction text through Scholastic News and Science readers into my classroom! One goal I have is to tie these magazines to our reading curriculum as well as the science curriculum by focusing on text features, identifying the main idea of a multi-paragraph text, exposure to new vocabulary, glossaries, indexes, and much more!

Another goal is to organize a challenge group of students and run a small group with them during the week to dig deeper into the text with the 3rd grade Scholastic News.

Often times it can be harder to gather more challenging and engaging activities for those gifted students. This will help differentiate instruction with non-fiction text which is super important.

My third goal will be creating success and a new love for reading for my struggling readers using the first grade level of the Scholastic News magazines. When a child learns to read and loves it, there's nothing better!
