My Students

Energetic, enthusiastic, and considerate are a few of the many words I would use to describe the fantastic group of fifth graders I am teaching this year. They are so persistent and determined to accomplish whatever task is set before them.

My students love to read.

We are from a small town that is a tight-knit community where they have grown up knowing each other well. We love our community and how close everyone is with each other. It wouldn't be uncommon for the entire class to be at the Friday night football game cheering on the team and cheerleaders or bump into them at the store.

With such a close community, we have the luxury of a close classroom community. We learn by talking it out, listening to each other's ideas, debating our opinions with facts, and discussing our readings together.

My Project

What is a book without an audience? My students and the other 5th grade classes this project would benefit love to read, but most importantly, they like to talk about their reading. One of the best ways to enhance the in-depth conversations in the classroom is through a classroom novel. With the class set of books we are asking for, the students will be able to get a wide range of novels to read together and talk about it while we are reading.

Classroom novels will allow us to travel to different worlds together.

Reading as a group helps students understand differing opinions, dive deeper in their reading, find meaning in words, and talk about things that are matter inside and outside of the classroom.
