My Students

I have a very special group of 3rd graders this year. They are all wonderful students and I feel so lucky to be their teacher this year. They all have wonderful talents from being great artists to playing all kinds of sports. I even have some creative writers this year who just may grow up to be authors one day and I would be thrilled to read any of their books. They truly are a talented and special group of students.

My Project

These materials will make a HUGE difference in my students' learning. I will use the information from these professional books to teach my writers specific strategies they can use when they are working on their writing pieces.

These materials also offer specific lessons and techniques I can use in my classroom during Writer's Workshop.

I will use the information from these texts to help my writers with specific writing skills such as using appropriate conventions and incorporating voice into their writing pieces.

Even though my students are in 3rd grade, I know what is expected of them when they enter 4th grade. There are some skills I can teach them now so they are prepared for next year.
