My Students

My 4th graders are curious and excited to learn, but many of them are from low-income homes and/or are English Language Learners. Our school is a Title I school and I try to give them opportunities to work with technology they wouldn't normally have access to.

When they are offered the opportunity to stretch their brains, they simply light up.

They are more engaged when they are offered opportunities to experiment and engage in their learning as well as have opportunities to use what they have learned in an authentic real-world setting.

My Project

Help give my students this classroom library designed for learning grammar and mentor texts for strategic learning. These texts will improve my students reading skills, grammar, vocabulary, and give them mentor text for writing.

These books are fun and engaging as well as educational.

Many of my students are well below the 4th grade reading level, and several of them are at the 1st grade reading level. These books will help bring those students up to the 4th grade level , and they will help the students closer to the 4th grade level have engaging mentor texts to develop their writing skills.
