My Project

The students in my classroom are really soaring through words. They are taking their sight words and putting them in books.

The books have my students going through adventures and dreams about things they could do someday.

The students love to read fiction and nonfiction books during this time of the season when we are snuggled up in our classrooms or in our homes due to the frigid temps in northern Minnesota.

Students enjoy adventure, love to explore, and dream as they read fiction and nonfiction stories to families and friends.
