My Students

My students love reading. Every morning the first thing they do when they come in the classroom is pick a book to read that day. Through the day they are always finding time to pull out their book and look at the pictures and share what they have read with me and the class.

They have inspired me to love reading.

Through books they learn about the world around them and are taken on brilliant adventures to lands far away.

My Project

These books will help my students to not only learn how to read, but will also give great examples of good writing that they can mimic in their own writing. As we read the books as a class, we will pinpoint specific writing skills we can copy in our writing such as creative writing, uses of punctuation and specific words to show meaning and depth.

Children not only need examples of writing, but also how to regulate and deal with emotions.

In our world today, not enough time and effort is spent teaching children how to cope with the difficulties in the world around them. Through these books, I will teach my students specific skills to use when they are mad, sad or even how to have a growth mindset.
