My Students

My students come to school each day full of the excitement to learn. They are full of questions and ideas! Most of them are eager to find answers and will keep inquiring all day long! I strive to point them all in the right direction and help them feed their curiosity.

Many of my students struggle to read, but when they find a book about a topic they love, they are so very eager to tell me what they learned!

Seeing the excitement in their faces as they say, "Mrs. Schafer, guess what?" is the highlight of my day! I love to encourage them by suggesting another book they may like about a similar topic and see their eyes light up with anticipation of what information it might contain!

My Project

Graphic Novels are a great way to introduce classic books in a kid friendly way. They contain bright colorful pictures perfect for visual learners and often times have higher vocabulary words in lieu of long drawn out sentences that contain too many context clues for young readers.

Graphic Novels are becoming mainstream reading and even qualify and receive literary awards.

They are no longer the short little "comics" that we grew up with, that we adults some time picture when kids ask to read Graphic Novels. The Graphic novel genre has been stereotyped and we need to break the mold.

These graphic novels on my list are based off of classic books. My hope is that once they read the graphic novels, they will enjoy them so much that they will be better prepared and excited to read the original.
