Our district is very small with only two schools in it, and our school has approximately seven hundred eighty students total, but we are growing quickly.
We live just a few blocks away from the Pacific coast.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds and family structures. They are all full of life and have a huge love of learning! Our students work hard, have huge dreams, and deserve an education that not only consists of textbooks but also technology with hands-on learning, magazines, newspapers, and so much more.
My students will be entering into their third unit of study in reader's workshop on fantasy, and will be focusing on the novel "Thief of Always".
The "Thief of Always" is a great book to teach fantasy skills, as well as a book that grabs the reader's attention as soon they open up the book!
By allowing the students to each have a copy, they can use what we are learning with our standards, and pull out text evidence, go back and reread the text, as well as see how the text can help us with fluency, comprehension, and language skills.
