My Students

The best part of teaching second grade is the students. At this age, students are naturally curious and willing to take a risk with their learning. They are learning how to get along with their classmates and still love pleasing their teacher.

My classroom aims to meet the needs of all my students; we use flexible seating options, individual learning opportunities, and various opportunities to demonstrate learning.

Students thrive with these individualized approaches to learning, and the joy they feel when mastering new skills is palpable.

My Project

I am always looking for literature that will excite my students to read. Interesting characters and funny story lines are always a hit, but text that is easily accessible, yet highly engaging, for my beginning readers can be difficult to find.

That is where Kate DiCamillo comes in; her books are highly sought after by my students.

I shared the first Mercy Watson book with my class and they found the characters and story hysterical. I purchased two sets of the books, but I can't keep them on my shelves! I am hoping this project will expose my students to a range of her incredible work and they will begin exploring her other characters and story lines.
