My Students

My class is made up of mostly Hispanic children who are from various backgrounds. There are several different levels of language ability including some students who are brand new to our country. I love seeing how my students support each other and help their classmates learn English. They are very kind and compassionate children.

I have an amazing group of fourth grade students this year.

They are all very special and continue to astound me every day with their curiosity, learning, and kind hearts. I can honestly say I love working with these children because of their awesome personalities.

My school is a Title I school in Virginia. Many students here come from low-income families. We are fortunate to have some partners in education that help students with basic school supplies, backpacks, food bags, and even winter coats. It is such a blessing to have a community that supports education, and I want to do my part to give my students the best fourth grade year ever.

My Project

My students, like most students and people in general, tend to read only fiction stories. They are more interesting and all around entertaining, plus they are easier to read. I would like to increase my students' background knowledge and build their technical reading skills with nonfiction books.

One of the areas my students struggle when it comes to SOL testing is comprehension of nonfiction.

I would like to update the selection of nonfiction titles in my class library with titles that are more interesting and relevant to my students. I am hoping that this will encourage an increased amount of reading in informational books and eventually help them become better learners. With the goal of continuing education beyond high school to trade school or college, we need to start teaching kids how to use books as resources.
