My Students

My students from Columbia, SC are part of a virtual class in a Title One school. My class gives children from a variety of household incomes and living situations an opportunity to learn and thrive within a digital community. My energetic third graders strive to work together, learn, and have fun together even if we can't be physically together.

My Project

These books and puppets will encourage my struggling readers to read with fluency. My classroom library and read aloud time are places my students really enjoyed and thrived with reading when I had a face-to-face class. I want to replicate that reading together time beyond reading quality books to the students and giving time for the students to read independently. These books and puppets will allow the students to practice their reading in a fun way and then come together to show their reading skills as they perform for an audience.
