I know there are so many teachers that say this ,but I truly have an incredible group of kids! This group of kids always has a smile on their face and continues to work harder and push themselves day in and day out. Many of them come from low-income families and some just bad situations, but they never make excuses, they don't complain, they look to the brighter side of things.
At the beginning of the year, I stressed how our class was a unit and a family.
Even though I do have a few troublemakers, this class took that to heart and became a family. Every student truly cares about each other and are constantly working and building each other up.
The one thing I can tell you about my class that makes them special is this... There are good students, smart kids, hard workers, the list goes on. And while my kids are all of these things and more, the thing I'm most proud of is that they good hearted people.
We are going to read the book, Wonder. I would love a class set for my kids to share with each other! While reading we will be starting a project where we write our own Wonder story from each students point of view!
When finished we will self publish so the kids will know the process of writing a story from multiple points of view, as well as get an idea for the publishing process.
We will be going through WAG Publishing to get our story published. They are a self publishing company that is working within our school to help our kids along with helping for a young authors program! Please help us make this idea a reality! Thank you!
