My Students

I teach fifth grade in a school that is approximately sixty-five percent Title I. Over half of our students come from economically disadvantaged homes. We have a diverse group of students, including African Americans, Asians, and Hispanic students. My students come with a variety of needs and reading levels.

These children come to school each day ready to learn and with smiles on their faces.

They are excited to read and love having the chance to choose books in our classroom library. They love new books and any opportunity to read.

My Project

Reading Workshop is the best part of my fifth grade students' day. They love having choices about what they read. They are amazing thinkers who apply what they learn in their mini lessons to the quality literature in my classroom library. Their favorite types of books are graphic novels. Graphic novels are amazing, because not only are they engaging, but they provide support for all readers. They allow all students to read books that are challenging.

Graphic novels engage readers, encourage them to try something different, and help them to read more and we need children to read more.

The books in this project will reach a variety of readers. There are books about struggles, books about friendship, nonfiction, and fantasy. I am hopeful that with the variety, students will be encouraged to move beyond the graphic novel and into other text on the same topic.
