My Students

"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader," is my motto for my classroom this year. My students come to class eager to learn about what is going on in our world each day. The more exposure students have to books, the more likely they are to be aware and interested in learning and reading more. Indeed, reading aloud each day is a way toward developing lifelong readers!

My students love to read and enjoy learning and have a keen interest about what is going on in the world around them.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I want to prepare my students to be aware of what is going on around them. I have diverse learners in my classroom and differentiated instruction is a priority. My goal is to provide each student a creative and positive learning environment in order to continue a path toward academic excellence.

My Project

This year's Global Read Aloud for 6th grade is called, Indian No More by Charlene Willing Mcmanis. Each student will have their own novel, and we will be reading this novel together in class. We will be connecting with other students around the world, as they will be reading this same book, at the same exact time. This will allow students to interact with each other with conversations centered around this particular novel.

This is so exciting in so many ways for my students.

My students, during a set 6-week period, will make as many global connections as possible.

Read alouds are powerful because they serve so many instructional purposes—to motivate, encourage, excite, build background, develop comprehension, assist children in making connections, and serve as a model of what fluent reading sounds like. I look forward to seeing the smiles on my student's faces when they receive their book and get to connect with the world around them.
