My Students

In our diverse, urban, Seattle 2nd/3rd classroom, we are learning about ourselves as we delve into math, science and social studies lessons within the context of our own community. About 1/3 of our students are learning English, 1/5 have learning disabilities, 1/5 are advanced learners, and 1/2 receive free and reduced lunch. These young children are developing their own identities and a sense of who they are in our school community, and the wider global community as they play and learn.

These books are carefully crafted to inform about major landforms, animals, and peoples of our world's continents.

My Project

These materials allow emerging readers to read independently to study and learn about a continent! For example, for South America students will research The Amazon, The Pantanal, The Chinchilla, The Limpkin, The Vampire Bat, The Rainbow Boa, The Three-Toed Sloth, The Capybara, and The Yanomami people.

These books have an intentional structure for teaching non-fiction reading to students.

Each set includes 9 readers with stories pertaining to that continent. First, the child reads the unillustrated book so that she can focus on decoding. Next, the child reads the text on the corresponding text cards to match to the included picture cards. Numbers on the back of the cards serve as a control for error. Finally, the child can use the masters to demonstrate confidence and comprehension by illustrating a copy of the story to take home.
