My Students

My students come from all over the world! We are fortunate to be in shadow's distance to a major university which provides us the opportunity for our students to learn alongside a very international and diverse group of friends. It also means that we have an ever changing level of abilities and expectations within our classroom walls. A typical day in my classroom involves a lot of movement and discussion. We are an active group and are constantly exploring the curriculum through experimentation and personal interaction with the world!

My Project

These picture books will become a part of our daily exploration of literature titled "Classroom Book a Day"! We are utilizing amazing works of literature to not only teach social skills, but also expose children to a variety of authors, characters, and reading possibilities! By getting these books permanently, instead of through the public library, I am hoping they will become beloved classics that the children will reread throughout the whole year. My goal is to utilize each book for not only life lessons, but also comprehension and decoding techniques through the modeling of a read aloud. Some are connected to the curriculum of genre studies, some are social stories, and some are just pure silly fun! This is the first of a few similar projects I hope to post in order to build this collection.
