My Students

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." - Dr. Seuss

My students are ready to GO!

I teach to a culturally and linguistically diverse population of kindergartners in a high poverty, high needs, urban area in Oregon.

My students are engaging, awesome people who are learning to find their place in the world. They are scientists and dreamers, negotiators, and schemers, at times cautious and at times reckless. They are exciting AND excited.

My Project

Students love Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books because the two characters are hilarious, adorable, and above all, best friends. Teachers love Elephant and Piggie books because they can teach students about speech bubbles, ellipses, plot, allow practice with retelling.....and above all make them fall in love with reading!

To inspire this love for reading at young age is priceless and sets a momentum to last forever!

As we move towards Readers' Workshop in our district, these Elephant and Piggie books will help partners practice their developing reading skills. In the early grades, children need to read a lot of books to gain necessary traction to become proficient readers. The more enjoyable the reading experience is for them, the more likely they are to read. Elephant and Piggie books are highly motivating for young readers. With the delightful happy-endings and the amazing friendship and love that Mo Willems creates between his characters, students develop a passion for reading.
