My Students

My third grade classroom is made up of a diverse population of learners and sweet personalities. As a self-contained teacher, I spend my day with the same students, helping them grow in all subjects. I am excited to take the knowledge they absorbed last year, and continue to help my students grow for 180 days! I have an energetic group of students who are full of questions, enthusiasm, and a love for learning!

I teach in a small rural town, which makes my classroom full of diverse learners.

Third graders are like sponges, and each day is spent helping them soak up new knowledge. Whether it is reading a picture book to review and apply new skills, practice math concepts using games and manipulatives, or sharing new ideas, learning is always taking place in my classroom!

My Project

Students in third grade often have a difficult time understanding and enjoying informational text. Most view this as boring information, which makes it difficult for them to make connections to the text. Scholastic News is a magazine filled with current events, nonfiction articles, and real photographs, all crafted for third grade students.

Allowing students the opportunity to receive their own magazine each month will help foster a curiosity of current events.

It will make them more aware and have a greater understanding of skills such as author's purpose, fact and opinion, and text features. Scholastic News also provides a short quiz at the back of each magazine, based on different texts. Another awesome thing about this magazine is all issues are available online, which allows for more research to be doing using Chromebooks.
