My Students

I teach in a rural elementary school filled with kids who share a love of literature. My fifth graders are enthusiastic about learning and always bring an imaginative spin to every lesson.

Texas Bluebonnet Award books and battle of the books are two things the students here look forward to every year.

Library day is a day they look forward to all week. They lose themselves in the rows of genres and titles. They are really into series sharing or author sharing right now. If you reads an author they think is great they strongly encourage other students to try them out.

My Project

Novel studies give students the resources and tools to dig deeper into a book and develop those critical thinking skills. Having enough books for each child to hold, read, and follow along makes these studies so much more interactive. When a child is able to hold the book they are reading or working through it keeps there minds focused on the setting, the characters, and the plot. Adding the tactile support of a physical book is also beneficial for some readers. The memory retention is higher if they are able to read it themselves or follow along. This set of books will be placed in the literacy closet to enrich minds for years to come.
