My Students

I teach social studies and science at a K-6 Title I school where deserving, energetic students are eager to learn, yet do not always have what they need. Our supportive staff members reach out; however, the needs are often great.

My heterogeneously-grouped class consists of students who have a variety of strengths and talents.

These students are communicators and collaborators in social studies and science through hands-on investigations/explorations, partner activities, and small-group projects. Classmates work hard to create a dynamic learning community.

My Project

These captivating resources will make a difference in my students' learning. Our current resources are not always engaging for students nor do we have access to a lot of nonfiction text.

The SuperScience and Scholastic News magazines will improve our learning community in many ways.

First, motivation for reading would be enhanced with high-interest materials. Second, the appealing articles would deepen knowledge of understanding text features and comprehension of challenging reading material. These materials would be easily accessible at our reading station. We would use these great reading resources during guided reading, partner reading, and with whole-group activities. Third, these paper/online issues offer updated and relevant information which most likely will pique a child's interest to learn even more about our world. Last, all students will enjoy benefits from these materials as reading success is enhanced with daily practice.
