A typical day in our classroom includes engaging literacy stations, guided reading, brain breaks, and hands on math activities based on the common core state standards. "If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." Ignacia Estrada
I teach 3rd grade in a high poverty school where students face difficulties both in and out of the classroom.
Although these students face various difficulties they are always willing to put forth the effort and determination to achieve goals they have set for themselves.
I am trying to teach them to be life long learners, instill good habits, and teach them to be problem solvers.
My students are always eager to learn new concepts! They walk into the classroom excited to see what we will be learning each day. The books we are requesting will help my students dive into reading. These Who Are/What Is books will be used daily during my guided reading time. During guided reading, students learn to read at their own level. These stories will allows my kiddos an opportunity to ensure quality reading in school with instructional support. The books requested will provide each student an opportunity to practice comprehension and fluency. Every book that is donated will be placed in my guided reading library and will be treated with love and care. I know my students will be thankful for the opportunities to read their favorite stories. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. They are very interested in non-fiction books. The best way to increase reading abilities is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.
