I work in a small, rural school that is a collection of students from many small, but different towns. My dream is to make each student fall in love with reading. The first step to becoming a life-long reader is finding the book that starts the domino effect.
It is my goal to change the way students think by changing the way they think about learning.
With your help, we can change not only the lives of the students in my room, but the lives of the individuals in the community. I believe that we need to start with our students in the classroom in order to spread positivity and cultural change and I hope we can work together to accomplish this.
Families are always asking students what they're learning in school. What if we asked these families to take an active role in reading what their child is so that they can not only discuss and understand what's happening with the child socially, but also academically?
Literature circles are a way of making sure that students have a choice when it comes to what they read and these books will be used to connect students both to major ideas and to their families.
Parents and other important adults will be invited to read along with their child and attend different classroom discussions regarding the topics and major themes. This is a unique way to connect students and affect more than one generation of learners.
