My students are the absolute best! They are sweet, kind, loving, and caring individuals who work extremely hard each and every day. They are making so much progress and growth this year. We have an extremely diverse population of students from many different cultures and backgrounds. 5th grade has been a huge transition year for them, where they are maturing and developing their own unique personalities. They are also learning independence and learning to take responsibility for their own education.
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.
We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
I want my students to be exposed to more non-fiction and expository texts, and I believe Time for Kids will do the trick! I would love to add this to my small group literacy rotations during the week. I really think my students will be able to learn so much from this resource and will be able to relate to the articles. They will be able to potentially create real life connections to people and places around the world and stay up to date with issues going on in our own country. It will also help to build more background knowledge and higher level vocabulary, which are important skills for a 5th grader to have.
