My Students

Our community school is very diverse where many backgrounds and languages are represented. For most of our students, English is not their primary language. As a result, my students face challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the challenges they face on an everyday basis, I am always looking to provide my students with meaningful learning experiences.

My students show up to school excited and ready to learn.

It is my goal to help my students not only reach the next reading level but to keep my students motivated to learn.

My Project

This year I started using interactive notebooks with my students in Science and have found students to be more engaged during lessons. My goal for next school year is to continue to use interactive notebooks in Reading. I have used folders in the past for Reading, but papers always seem to be missing when it is time to reread a passage or article. With recently being informed that I will be teaching Reading to the entire 5th grade, I currently do not have enough glue sticks to last the year to create interactive reading notebooks. The glue sticks will be used daily to keep reading passages and graphic organizers glued into notebooks. The double sided tape will be an alternative to glue for students that may need it. Lastly, the packaging tape will allow me to post vocabulary anchor charts around the classroom for my students to see so they can take notes directly into their notebooks.

With an interactive notebook, students will have a reference source right at their fingertips to refer back to since all reading passages and graphic organizers will be glued directly into the notebook.

These notebooks will help my students learn in a meaningful way, which is why I am requesting these sticky materials.
