My Students

Unique, energetic, determined and curious are just a few words to describe my 3rd graders. Most of my students have many things going on in their lives that could and do prevent them from learning. Helping students overcome those outside obstacles, even if it is just for a day or an hour is amazing to see. Some of these students have been through more tragedy and loss than most of us will see in a lifetime. Their willingness to push forward and thrive is inspiring.

My Project

Students love having books read aloud to them! Any time we are able to come to the carpet and read a good book students are engaged. This can apply to all content areas, not just reading!

With math books students would learn new math topics through an engaging book.

We could read these books on the carpet and discuss different topics through the world of reading!

Students could then access these books as resources from our classroom library. This would give students the chance to read the books on their own to support their learning. They could refer back to them later as well!
