My Students

My students come to my multi-age classroom representing a huge range of reading abilities. I have students reading below grade level, at grade level and far above grade level.

My students, ages seven to nine, are at the very beginning of developing their lives as readers.

Some came into my classroom already identifying as readers, while others have not yet developed this identity. Research shows that third grade is a critical year for reading development. Once they are past that grade, it can be difficult for struggling readers to get to the standards. My goal as a teacher of second and third-grade students is to get them hooked on reading early so that they will become lifelong readers who not only read at standard but above all, read for enjoyment!

My Project

These sixteen amazing titles will compete for the ultimate honor of being named the 2020 Picture Book Champion! Each week, LES students will vote between two books as they face each other on the 2020 Picture Book bracket.

But we can't cast an informed vote if we don't have access to the books!

March Book Madness is reading high-quality children's literature disguised as a sports tournament. By participating in the challenge, students will engage in passionate discussions about what they like about the books and argue their position as to which books should advance in the tournament.

But above all, students will get to read sixteen thoughtfully-selected stories that reflect this year's theme: characters who are "brave and bold." After the tournament, these titles will go to our school library for checkout.
