The moment my 3rd-5th grade students walk into my room, their eyes are full of excitement, curiosity, wonder, and imagination. They cannot wait to see what they will be learning about that day!
From the depths of studying about animals in different environments, discovering new places around the world, learning how to solve story problems, to connecting with fun-loving characters in books, elementary school is where we create life-long learners.
My students' love of learning, creative mindset, and friendly attitudes make teaching in Charlotte a wonderful place. One of the best parts of teaching is when a students' eyes light up halfway through a lesson and you can tell that the light bulb "aha" moment just kicked in.
The reading comprehension cards will be very beneficial and engaging for my 3rd, 4th and 5th grade small reading groups. The students I work with usually struggle with reading comprehension and they lack self-confidence when they are with their peers. They need additional reading support, in a small group setting, that will allow them to practice the skills and strategies used to pass their end of grade tests.
These reading cards provide a variety of science and social studies topics that my kids will be able to gain more information about.
We will be able to work together to find the evidence in the text to answer the comprehension questions that they struggle with. The cards are appealing to kids, ask amazing questions that allow my kiddos to collaborate together to solve, and they will help to build their reading self-esteem and confidence.
