My Students

My classroom this year is a fourth and fifth grade room full of high-ability students. Located in Indiana, our students come from varying socioeconomic and personal backgrounds with nearly sixty percent receiving reduced or free priced lunch. Our school is diverse, as it includes gifted enriched learning, special education and ABA rooms, preschool, and general education programs. Students from outside of our district can travel to our school to be involved in these special education and gifted programs throughout the year. This year, my split classroom requires me to find texts that can be used for the next two groups, as I may loop with students.

My students are thinkers, builders, artists, and my daily source of laughter.

I have several students with twice-exceptionalities (both gifted and have disabilities). Diversity in our classroom covers these abilities, as well as students from varying cultures.

EWA provides gifted art and band classes, as well as enrichment success periods at the end of the day. There are various clubs and organizations for students to take part in and a phenomenal staff who support each other.

My Project

This project will add to the Graphic Novel Section of my classroom library and add sets of popular series I'm missing Each spring I do a survey of my students to see how I can improve as a teacher or make our classroom better.

I had several readers last year suggest that for my library to be better I need to start adding graphic novels.

These books are beneficial to my students who are English Language Learners, as well as those who want to read something that is low pressure. Creating a classroom library that's full of books kids actually want makes it more appealing for my readers to grab new books. I'm a firm believer that any book that encourages a child to read is a good book- level, lexile, etc. doesn't matter when it comes to students reading for joy. With Graphic Novels from popular authors, I feel that I can reach an even broader group of my fabulous readers!
