My Students

I am blessed to teach twenty-four energetic fifth-graders on a daily basis! My kids are incredibly creative, inquisitive, and love to read and write in our classroom library. My students range in reading abilities from reading on a second grade level all the way up to an eighth-grade level.

My students love to get lost in a great book, and they choose to read, write, and draw every chance they get.

By giving them a more diverse selection of reading and writing materials, I know I can help students who are below grade level to improve their skills while also challenging students who are above grade level.

My Project

Reading and writing centers materials will help to make guided reading groups meaningful and productive for all students. The fifth-grade literacy bundle will help my students to practice our language arts essential concepts while the phonics activities will help me to fill the spelling and phonics gaps my below grade level readers have so they can grow their reading skills and be successful with fifth-grade content.

All students deserve a chance to be successful and enjoy reading, so we have to identify every student's areas for improvement and plan lessons that will help every child be successful and make continuous progress.

When students feel success, they build the determination and confidence they need to keep learning and growing as readers and lifelong learners.
