My Students

My students are energetic, diverse, and love to learn! I love making my lessons as innovative, interactive, and hands-on as possible. I am going on to my fourth year of teaching and I am always researching new and fun ways to meet the individual needs of my students through my passion of literacy, mathematics, mindfulness, and character development of kindness and compassion. I try to provide my students with every possible tool, strategy, and experience I can to make them successful, life long learners!

In an age of technology take over, my goal as a teacher is for my students to fall in love with reading and to feel success as third graders who are now "reading to learn" and not just "learning to read."

I try to provide my students with the best materials, content, and resources so I can help provide them a fun, engaging educational experience!

My Project

By providing my reluctant readers and high need students with Kindles, students will have the opportunity during our guided reading and independent reading time, to engage in books by listening and tracking with use of a kindle fire. I asked for three because out of all the ages, 3rd grade is one of the most difficult to get students to attend to task to finish a book, read with meaning (not just reading words), and to sustain reading/building reading stamina for longer durations. This will help me to provide resources to students who also struggle with reading on grade level and attention difficulties as well as my reluctant readers.

I have found that 21st century students thrive off utilizing technology in the classroom as it relates to reading to help in building their engagement, fluency, comprehension, and to foster reading stamina.

I also added headphones to provide the opportunity for students to listen to the text as they track and read to build upon their fluency. Additionally, I added a cart and power strip so I can store these Kindles in a way that is accessible to my students and they can all charge over night.
