My Students

We are so blessed to work in fourth grade! I coteach with an amazing teacher. I teach Social Studies and Reading. She teaches Math and Science. We have connected walls that can open up to make one giant classroom. It is our favorite to have "Open Wall" days where we can work with all of our students at once.

Fourth grade is the best year to teach because we see our students really learn about who they are individually and their personalities start to shine.

They mature throughout their year and become independent in their learning. We are so blessed to have a group of students that bring sunshine each day they enter into the classroom.

My goal for our students each year is to find a passion for reading. We work hard all year to find the best books for students that will help them grow into a strong and independent reader. We have great incentives in place throughout the year to help our readers find their passion for diving into an amazing book!

My Project

Our students in fourth grade work so hard to become independent readers. We need these books to help us create lifelong readers. The books that are selected are the 2018-2019 Sunshine State Young Reader books. These books are selected by students, for students, to point them in the direction of a great book!

Our students will absolutely love reading these books!

I have requested two books for each title. This will help our students enjoy books together. In the past, these books help students find a favorite genre and/or series. It also helps them to find a new favorite author and try a different type of book.

The Media Center at our school also has incentives that students can earn. If a child reads all 15 SSYRA books, they are invited to try out for the Battle of the Books team! Our school has won the past two years in a row! This is a great way to encourage students to continue reading and helps encourage them with incentives and rewards.

We can't wait to start reading all of these amazing books!
