My Students

My class consists of 27 amazing 5th graders! In our class, we focus on Life Skills that will prepare us for the future. In our classroom, we work on leadership skills, promoting healthy choices, and organizational skills that will get us ready for Middle School and the world after.

We are a classroom of voracious readers and we absolutely LOVE to gobble up books.

We especially like to read historical fiction as a way of learning about the world around us.

My Project

My fifth-grade students are at that perfect age where they can think critically to question and learn from the world around them. These books will help them navigate tricky social situations, understand emotions, and make connections to the real world. My students love reading books with strong characters with whom they can connect.

Most of my students are voracious readers.

Many others are reluctant until they can find that certain character or author who sparks their interest and hooks their minds. My students created this wishlist of books full of diverse genres, authors, and characters that they are eager to love!
