Engage, engage... engaged! What an amazing year thus far! In our classroom, we discuss reaching higher and goal setting often; our small groups are named after universities. At times, you may hear a student or two debating which college is their top pick and why. My students come from families of varying backgrounds including differing socioeconomic statuses.
My students need to be prepared for the 21st century that utilizes technology, collaboration, creativity, and ingenuity.
I would like to incorporate STEM into our 5th-grade classroom to ensure that I give ALL my students ALL possible opportunities to be excited about learning and be successful! My amazing 5th-grade students are so very inquisitive, eager to learn, and truly work hard every day! I differentiate instruction to meet and maximize the learning needs of all 30 students.
I am seeking an initial class set of Esperanza Rising to add to our classroom library. Our curriculum includes the digital e-book, however, many students have really enjoyed hardcopies to read this novel. I would like to be able to give the students in my class the choice.
This well-written historical fiction novel is filled with surprises, tragedy, and change...it is full of life lessons and is tied to the curriculum.
A great book for sure!
When completing this novel study, not only are the students practicing reading skills and discussing events, we are also cover the Common Core Standards.
We are excited to add these hard copies our Class Library! Our classroom does not have these texts and this donation to our classroom library would be helpful for years to come!
