My Students

Hi! I teach fourth grade students in Slidell, Louisiana. My students range in academic abilities as well as economic backgrounds which provides us with a diverse and multi-faceted classroom. Students range from 9 - 10 years old.

My students are in need of new and updated materials in order to enhance their learning experience, especially in the areas of reading and writing.

On a regular basis students complete required as well as voluntary reading activities that help them to build strong educational foundations. It is my goal to help them hone their strengths and build on weaknesses for them to become strong, independent, successful learners!

My Project

Fourth grade is such a pivotal age for students and I want to stock my classroom library with challenging but exciting chapter books for my students. Classics such as Charlotte's Web, A Wrinkle in Time, and the Who Was series of books will engage students and make them excited to read.

Giving students access to chapter books and allowing them to spend their free time reading will help students with reading comprehension and even writing skills!

I am confident that by getting some new books and resources for my students I can re-engage their interest in learning and in reading for fun!
