My Students

My students are thoughtful, kind, energetic and enthusiastic. They are enthusiastic about learning, but some have developed a love-hate relationship with reading. They need books to draw them into reading and encourage them to read for fun. I need for them to learn to love reading so that in the future it isn't such a battle for them. I am hoping by providing some historical fiction and linking it to our history, that maybe it will draw some of my students into the world of books.

My Project

Having novel sets such as "The Great Gilly Hopkins" and "Poppy" enter my students into a world they have never seen before. Let's take a look into a life of a young girl during WWII or see life through the eyes of a young, ambitious mouse.

My students don't know the love of reading, and I am trying to give them experiences that will take them out of the classroom and into a new magical world.

What better way to learn about life as a Jew during WWII than to witness it through the eyes, heart and soul of a young Jew hidden by friends.

Reading is magical and everyone deserves to experience it.
