My Students

My school is a large community school where all of the students live within 2 miles of the school. I have a diverse population of students. My school serves over 50% minorities and 51% economically disadvantaged. We also have a large military population (25%) and students who speak other languages. I have two ELA classes each day to whom I teach reading, language arts, and writing.

My classes include a very broad range of skill levels with some students reading above grade level and other students reading on or below grade level.

Our school theme is Explorers, and that's exactly what my class will be this year!

My Project

I have selected around 50 new titles for our classroom library. A few are oldies but goodies that were checked out and loved too much to return. Most are brand new titles I've researched that were released in 2018. Fifth graders love new books and it's my job to make sure they have a large variety of topics and reading levels to choose from. I have selected Lexile levels from 500 to over 1000 to meet the needs of all of my readers. Additionally I have chosen books with themes that include financial literacy, cultural diversity, perseverance and grit, kindness, adventure, and so much more. Fiction teaches us how to be better people, how to manage emotions and show self-control, and how to handle hardships and disappointment. I love watching my students fall in love with new books!
