My Students

So many of my students set foot in the classroom with a smile and willingness to learn. They truly exemplify exceptional character by being respectful and responsible in the classroom and throughout our school. They support one another without question and try their very best.

We have learned about embracing a growth mindset where we do not perseverate on innate abilities, but look to achieve specific goals through each child's use of focused time and effort.

Every day is a huge opportunity for every boy and girl to grow as readers, writers and citizens of the global community.

My Project

Identified students will be given digital voice recorders to

take home daily for use during the 20 minute independent

reading time in the home. In addition, students will select

leveled reading chapter books based on their interests.

All books will be required to have a Accelerated Reader

comprehension quiz to be taken in class after completion

of each title. All recordings will be downloaded by me daily

to verify their practice and determine if adjustments need

to made. Research has shown it is impossible to monitor

reading practice if it is SSR or DEAR independent time where text is not read aloud.
