My Students

As a teacher at a low poverty school, I am continuously looking for ways to expose my students to experiences they will not be able to receive without my help. Despite the challenges they face daily, these students are very eager to learn and experience new things.

My students are very active and have a hard time sitting still, so making learning mobile and lively helps hold their attention.

Many of these students have experienced challenges that I could not imagine having to face as an adult; but they still come to school with a smile on their face. The typical student in my class reads at least two grade levels behind. They are completing math work that was taught in second grade, and struggling. My goal every day is to get them to understand one new thing a day, but really in the back of my mind I just want to show them a positive role model and someone who cares.

My Project

These books will be used as interactive read alouds to promote discussion about 4th grade reading skills. Even though my students are in upper elementary, they still love to be read to and picture books. The novel set will be used in guided reading groups.

One of my goals every year is to help students find their love of reading.

With these books I can show them how to interact with the story they are reading and how to think deeper about the meaning of the story. I can model good reading behavior and engage them within the 4th grade reading skills.
