My Students

I have a variety of students in my classroom this year, from English Language Learners and struggling readers, to GT students and readers far above where they are expected to be.

After dealing with so many changes brought to us by COVID, all of my students need a fun, interactive year of learning, and that’s exactly what I want to give them!

My Project

I have found a series that my students love! Watching the amazement in their eyes as we progress through the plot of these stories is amazing.

When each student can hold the book and read a long with me, we are able to take learning to a whole new level!

Not only do they love the story, they are then able to see the grammar used and apply it in their writing as well.

Using these books has help my students grow as readers so much, and I can't wait to see how their love for reading continues to grow!
