My Students

The students in my classroom love learning new things each and every day. One of their favorite times of the day occurs when they are given the opportunity to choose a book and read for the simple pleasure of reading. After reading, they love to create their own stories during Writer's Workshop. They also enjoy working in small groups during our Daily Math Workshop to explore and practice newly acquired skills at their own pace.

Students love our Read Aloud time and are able to listen to and understand the central message of the selected daily text.

Our school community is located in a high poverty area and school is a safe haven for my students. All students are given a free breakfast and free lunch everyday. The students in my classroom face many challenges on a daily basis but they enter the classroom with an enthusiasm for learning every day.

My Project

Our class has accepted the classroom book a day challenge and these books will allow students to hear stories that reflect the diversity of the students in the classroom.

Many of the non-fiction titles will inspire students to take risks and persevere to achieve their dreams.

Students may already have some knowledge of selected texts about Rosa Parks, Duke Ellington and Frida Kahlo but will be introduced to others about Dr. Temple Grandin, Cesar Chavez and Wilma Rudolph.

The fiction titles were specifically chosen to motivate and encourage students to move past the difficult times that occur in life and to create their own destiny. Students will hear stories filled with hope and determination then be able to transfer these feeling to their own life.
