My Students

In my classroom, students are actively engaged in collaborative groups, small group activities in reading and math, using various types of technology, and learning using whole brain. I am always interested in keeping my students engaged and finding the best way for them to enjoy being at school.

My school is a School-Wide Title I school.

The school I work at is very close to my heart because several of my family members went to this school when they were children, including my dad and my uncle. I was an intern at this school and I am absolutely in love with the family-like feeling you have with the staff and families that surround our building.

Our school is a global health and wellness that will was first implemented in 2017-2018 school year.

My Project

I would like to have a variety of nonfiction texts to teach guided reading in my classroom. Students will be learning how to interact and critically read informational texts in first grade through teacher-modeling with mentor texts, guided practice in small groups, and independent practice with books at their individual reading levels. Repetition is so important for students in internalize non-fiction reading skills like how to use a table of contents or find the definitions for bold vocabulary words in a book. While I can model how to read to find information in non-fiction books, I don't have leveled books for them to read for independent practice.

The book sets I have selected include topics that interest my students and they will look forward to reading.
