My Students

Hi and welcome to our room! We are a warm, fun, and friendly group! A typical day in our classroom is one that is full of intense instruction, laughter, collaboration, and fun brain breaks! My students are very hard working and give their all. I try to make our day fun and have every minute count!

My students are in a league of their own!

They are incredible fifth graders! Their personalities vary so much but they all have huge hearts and a hunger to learn! Simply said, I am beyond thrilled to be their teacher this year!

My Project

My classes are in need of a fun and fresh way to learn and review reading skills! Playing reading games would allow my students to see exactly how much fun reading can actually be. The games that I am asking for are both educational and engaging which is what many of my students are looking for. They would really be engaged with the reading comprehension games!

Instead of paper and pencil they will have the opportunity to team up with friends and review through an engaging game.

My students will want to come to reading class and have the chance to play these educational games that will serve as a review. with friends and review through an engaging game.
