My Students

I'm sure I'm not biased when I say I have the best 6th grade class out there! They are funny, skilled, positive, and always hungry for the next task. Between the four 6th grade classes, we keep them very busy with science projects, writing challenges, math problems and social studies questions.

The great thing about them is they are always up for the challenge.

They love to show us what they know, but also utilize that growth mindset when mistakes happen. I think this positive attitude and growth mindset starts with the teachers at Canyon Elementary modeling it well. Every teacher here is positive and smiling, and that trickles down and influences the students as well. I can feel that in our 6th graders and that helps build such a positive classroom environment.

My Project

At Canyon Elementary School, we are privileged to have a guided reading library that is full of sets of 6+ books to use with our students in our guided reading groups. This being said, we still share our books with other grade levels, which means there is some overlap that happens. I'll find a few books for my 6th graders to read in their groups, but they'll inform me they've already read them in earlier grades. So begins the game of finding the token book in the guided reading library that none of them have read. This resulted in us sixth grade teachers making a goal to create a mini 6th grade guided reading library with books that are just for 6th grade. It will allow us to compile a few sets of books that we have wanted to see in our guided reading library, but also supply us with books other grade levels haven't read with their guided reading groups.
