My Students

“I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a book.” – J.K. Rowling

Our students are starting off the school year by looking at looking at colorful fiction books and making observations about illustrations in those books.

They are making predictions and learning how to make personal connections between the books and their lives!

Our school is a Title I School located in the heart of the Bronx. Our student population is very diverse and most of them come from low socioeconomic backgrounds, receiving free/reduced price lunch.

My Project

The Elephant and Piggie books will engage my students in fiction books that cater to their interests and provide them access in reading about their favorite characters. Our students will utilize the books to develop and advance their literacy skills, as the books not only engage them in seeing how their favorite characters act in a text but also allow them to practice their reading powers and reading strategies. In reading these leveled books, students will be able to deepen their comprehension through developing inferences, making predictions what is going to happen in the book, making connections between the book and their lives, and allowing them to question about their favorite characters. The Elephant and Piggie books also bring joy and excitement to our students!
