My Students

The students in my class are always going above and beyond to achieve their goals. When they set goals for themselves, they seek help from me or their classmates. My students are great at building and maintaining a classroom community throughout the year.

Some of the students have the skills and abilities that they never knew they had.

Through different projects or other self-discovery, they are finding more out about themselves that can not be taught from a book or video.

My Project

Several of my students have read the books in my classroom library multiple times. These new reading materials will allow them to explore a new genre they may have not read before. Students like to recommend books to others, so if a child in my class has read one of the books, they can share with another student to encourage even more reading!

The students in my fifth-grade class have learned to love reading!

The new games will help my students gain a deeper understanding of their reading, all while making it more fun and enjoyable! My students love building and creating words. They also like to challenge each other in creating words they may not normally look up.
