Help me give my students a captivating book series that they just can't put down!
With little family involvement at home, the Byers Buffaloes crave a loving school environment. Our classroom motto is: "Be wise. Be kind. Be brave."
Along with academic instruction, I am also very passionate about teaching my students what it means to become kids of character.
I want them to grow from simply being rule followers into students who desire to make wise decisions on their own. Additionally, since I teach in a high poverty school, I want my students to have as many unique, hands-on experiences as possible. I strive to provide research-based instruction for my students as a facilitator of learning while encouraging them to take risks and develop into life-long learners!
At the beginning of the school year, it is not uncommon to hear: "I hate reading!" or "None of these books look good to me..."
But then, one magical day, they pick up the first book in a series, and then it's hook, line, and sinker!
When students are engaged in a book series, they find any spare moment of the day to read the next page of their beloved book. Students who once stared at the clock during independent reading time to see how much longer it is until lunch now check the clock to see WHEN independent reading time is! It doesn't take long for word to spread around the classroom about the "lit" new series Miss Byers has!
