It's That Time of Year!

Help me give my students some different opportunities to explore what is possible with a little bit of imagination. A chance to read a good book and disappear to another land!

My Students

My fifth-grade classroom is a place of growth and learning. A high percentage of my students are learning English as a second language and benefit greatly from visual aids and hands-on activities.

The students in my Title I classroom are fifth graders in a rural area of a Utah town.

These students are excited to learn and find joy in the challenge that the learning process can bring. This school year, we are focusing on future goals in education and maximizing the potential of each child to achieve great things as they progress through life.

My Project

This year, we have really focused on discovering the joy that comes from reading and playing games. My students have been enjoying meeting with a literature circle group each Friday and discussing the books they are reading together. They also look forward to Funday Friday where they get a chance to socialize and think analytically through gameplay. It has been such a treat for me to see their faces light up as they become excited about the stories they are reading and the games they are playing.

My students are learning to love the magic waiting to be discovered between the pages of a great book and the strategy behind a good game.

In order for our book clubs and fun Fridays to be successful, we are in need of a few additional books, games, and reading supplies. They have voted and would love to add 'Queen of Air and Darkness' and 'The Cruel Prince' to their stash of books. They would also add the games 'Rush Hour' and 'Set' to our class collection. In addition, they are excited to have a few new supplies for their reading and game playing fun. Specifically, much-needed bookmarks, and underlining pencils.

My students will be beyond thrilled if these items are made available to them!
