My Students

My students are outgoing and eager to learn new things every day. Students enter the classroom each morning with bright smiles highlighting their excitement and anticipation for the hands-on learning experiences that awaits them.

We are a K to 5th grade Title I elementary school with 400+ children, and we are receiving students regularly from Puerto Rico.

All students receive free breakfast and/or lunch. We are a proactive school with several before and after-school tutoring and community outreach programs. Our students' families struggle financially, but everyone is dedicated to helping our parents provide for their children.

The educators and support staff are amazing in their dedication and determination to make a difference in the lives of our students. Our goal is to give each student the very best education and the best support possible at all times. We have many students entering our Orlando classrooms who have been displaced due to Hurricanes Maria and Irma. These students are new to the English language, and we need materials to support their learning. As they come, we will not fail in our mission to embrace them with open arms and our students share our same vision.

My Project

My students will complete a novel study using Andrew Clements, Jake Drake: Know-It-All. This book has a Lexile level appropriate to challenge my students to achieve their reading goals and continue to practice the 3rd grade standards we have learned all year. With this book, students will be able to see how characters change throughout a text based on their actions and/or experiences. They will also use the book to compare and contrast the theme, setting and plot with a different Andrew Clements book. Throughout our read, students will work with their groups to complete a project that will display their learning through the use of this book.
