My Students

Our grade level is departmentalized so I teach Language Arts and Social Studies twice daily reaching over 40 kids each day. My ELA and Social Studies classroom is full of energetic, motivated, and outgoing third graders. I greet them each and every morning at the door with the handshake to make sure the day starts out right.

We are located in a Northwest suburb of Dallas, Texas and are all about making sure our learning is engaging, exciting, and relevant.

In order to accomplish this, I look to have lots of fun tools available and at the ready.

My Project

My students need to be good readers and great thinkers. They need to ask higher-order questions, think critically, and evaluate their texts when reading. These Lakeshore Learning 5-Minute Vocabulary Practice Cards and Can Do! Reading Games for grades 3-4 will be used for independent practice as a way for students to extend our lessons in an engaging way. With this vocabulary set, students will get focused practice using context clues and identifying synonyms and antonyms to target an essential vocabulary skill. The Can Do! Reading Games will boost reading and writing skills while adding to their schema and background knowledge.

To help students better achieve these goals, educators can use multiple pieces of literacy instruction each important in their own way to teach these skills and fuel a lifetime love of reading.

This is what balanced literacy is all about.

With the help of these fun hands-on tools, my goal is to create independent readers by inspiring an authentic love and appreciation for reading among my students. It is important to foster fluency and comprehension, as well as collaboration, stamina, and perseverance.

These resources for our classroom will be used during independent center time to foster independence, enrichment, and collaboration. I am excited to put these amazing tools to good use with your help.
