My Students

I have two classes of 25 fifth grade students with a diversity of learning abilities, talents, and interests. The one thing we all have in common is a love of books.

I love literacy and the joy that comes with reading a good book with my students!

Last year we read Old Yeller and bonded as a class over the death of the dog. I was crying right along with my students. My favorite moment came when one student said, "Do you realize we are all crying over a dog that isn't real?"

Making books come alive for my students drives their desire to independently read. My ultimate goal for all of my students is for them to be life-long readers!

My Project

These materials will enable my students to read The One and Only Ivan as a class. We read it last year with six copies, I checked out from the library, in one of our literacy stations. It was difficult to finish the book and to have class discussions because the students all read at different paces and were in various chapters in the book.

Each student having a copy will allow the class to enjoy the book more fully and help create a meaningful reading experience.

It will make class discussions deeper and richer. The interest in books it generates will last beyond fifth grade and into their futures.
