My Students

I have 27 unique learners in my 5th-grade class. Our class is the only ICT (inclusion) 5th-grade class in the school. We celebrate cultural differences and welcome the importance of learning about others in a positive matter. The work we do in my class is centered around building relationships, being respectful, and understanding that people all learn from different modalities. Our class family is filled with 27 unique personalities who bring so much to our world today...they are the future of America!

We would love to give our students a physical copy of our next Read-Aloud book to send to our students while stuck at home.

We have noticed that many students are not able to access a computer and we would love for them to continue to read. Often times, we assign a read-aloud of us reading a story, but without the use of a computer, it is difficult for the students to listen and read.

My Project

My class has been working so hard with this new way of learning! I would love to be able to thank my students for their hard work! A common denominator I have noticed within my class, is that it is difficult to share computers in one household during this epidemic (multiple children in the house and parents working). I feel that it is very important for our students to continue to read as much as they could, especially when they have ample amount of downtime. I would love to see my students be able to participate, be engaged, and continue to read by having the physical copy of our class Read-Aloud.

This would make a major difference in our student's education and bring a smile to their faces during this difficult time.
