My Students

My students are INSPIRATIONAL! They inspire me to be the best teacher I can be. This is for them...

Reading is awesome, some just don't know it yet!

My fifth grade students are either avid readers or reluctant readers. My goal each year is to encourage kids to pick up a book and read it for enjoyment. The Texas Bluebonnet Award books create opportunities for students to find a book that fits their personalities and interests while allowing them to explore different genres.

My Project

The Texas Bluebonnet Award Books are 20 books that have been nominated by several librarians, teachers, and parents across the great state of Texas. The books are selected by considering student interest, relevant content, reviews, and literary quality.

The Texas Bluebonnet Award Books have been a staple in our classroom for the last 5 years!

The TBA books fly off of our school library's shelves! Having a set in our classroom will allow more of our students to read them. The goal is for our students to read as many of the TBA books so they can vote on their favorite and wait excitedly for the winner to be announced. You can help us achieve our goal!
