My Students

My fourth grade students are inquisitive, risk takers, determined, and enthusiastic. Their ideas, passion, and knowledge are truly inspiring. The students have a willingness to share and communicate with their peers that is a positive asset in the classroom.

My students walk into the class every morning knowing that they can rise to the challenges presented to them through hard work and perseverance.

The students are a diverse group of learners. They are encouraged to learn and grow at their own speed to become capable and confident learners.

My Project

The students in my literature circle are currently reading a novel called The Lemonade War. This is the first book in a series of five books. The students are so invested in this story and always anxious to read the next chapter. I know when the book is finished they are going to be looking to continue following the two main characters in this story. Unfortunately, I do not have the rest of the books to complete the series. The group would be so excited to have these books at their finger tips! I love how invested they have become in this story.
