My Students

I am blessed to teach third grade at a wonderful Title I school in northeast North Carolina. Our students are loving, hard working, easily motivated, and care about each other and their success! They thrive on competitions and reaching goals set for them throughout the school year.

Our students get excited, work harder and stay more engaged when they are given options and choices which makes them feel valued and that their interests matter!

We are a diverse school consisting of students and families from various backgrounds and cultures as well as Coast Guard families. They are each unique and have a special way of winning our hearts with their kindness and thoughtfulness. The students and staff at our elementary school has truly become a family to one another!

My Project

Our elementary school is blessed to have Renaissance Learning, a management system for reading. This system allows students to self select a book within their reading level range, read it, and then take a reading practice quiz, literacy skills test, and/or vocabulary quiz on the book. The system keeps track of students' number of words read, estimated engaged reading time, and average percent correct. It also differentiated between Fiction and Non-Fiction books read as well. Another great feature of this system is that is can read aloud the quizzes to students if needed, provide Spanish versions, and also identifies if books were read independently, read with or read to.

This year, our third grade students have been keeping track of their words read each week in their data binders and it has made a tremendous difference on the amount of reading they have accomplished this first semester!

The title of my project has been one of my favorite quotes written by Tom Peters since I began teaching in 1996! I am a firm believer that if you celebrate and focus on the things you want to see more of in your classroom, you will see the ripple effect take place! These black lights, neon face paint, glow in the dark paint, and fluorescent tape will be used to transform an unoccupied classroom in our building into an exciting and fun Glow in the Dark Dance Room for our students to move and groove that have met their reading goals each nine weeks and those that read 1,000,000 words by June 1st!

Thank you so much for considering our project that we believe will start a ripple effect in reading more among our entire school! Remember to Celebrate What You Want to See More of Today in your life and family!
