My Students

My class is comprised of a diverse group of 5th grade students. Since many of us spend more time together in our classroom than we do with our own families, we treat each other like family

In my classroom, we strive to build a classroom culture of acceptance, we support each others struggles, and applaud our successes.

I want my students to know that it's okay to make mistakes and that to try is the first step in reaching success. As we incorporate rigor into our everyday learning, one of the biggest hurdles I have is getting my kids to read well. By providing books that are interesting to them I can assure that my students are constantly challenged. A whole group class novel like Fish in a Tree will engage each student!

My Project

By reading Fish in a Tree as a whole class read aloud, my students will learn to enjoy reading a wide variety of books, learn to take the perspective of their peers, and learn the benefit of standing up for yourself and your friends by showing integrity.

Ali and the other characters in this book are ones that my 5th grade students can easily relate to.

Fish in a tree teaches valuable life lessons and presents them in a way that young readers find highly engaging.

Giving students thought provoking reading material helps keep them engaged in their reading and also provides them with exemplar writing pieces and they begin crafting their own literary pieces.
