My Students

Fifth grade is an exciting year that bridges Elementary School and Middle School. On any given year I have 23-29 fifth graders in their last year of Elementary School before going onto Middle School

I absolutely love teaching fifth graders because of their enthusiasm for learning.

Students love to be able to work together and more importantly learn from one another. They teach me something new everyday! As sad as I am to send them on to another school at the end of the year, I am always in awe of how much they have grown while being in my classroom.

My Project

In order to encourage lifelong readers I need students exposed to and discussing, quality literature. By having multiple copies of novels, students can read the same novel, discuss it together and analyze it more deeply. Also by toning down the fluorescent lights in our classroom it will help to calm and focus student to create an even more enriching environment for reading.

Book clubs are engaging, thought-provoking and at the same time they foster cooperation and collaboration.

I love seeing students get excited about stories and asking to read on. Book clubs promote this positive attitude towards reading.

Discussions about literature gives students multiple perspectives on literature which enables them to dig more critically into a story. Cooperation, increased comprehension and critical thinking are some of the important benefits of allowing students to analyze stories together.
