My Students

Our elementary school is a culturally rich school, with a diverse population of 580 students, in Pre-K through sixth grade.

Our Title I school population has 92% of students qualifying for free or reduced-priced lunches and a high concentration of English Language Learners.

We also serve two foster group homes, for temporary and long-term placement of homeless children.

We do not see these statistics as roadblocks. We see them as additions to our rich diversity. Together we will help students to develop to their fullest potential: Creative, problem-solving, compassionate adults.

My Project

This year our focus in 3rd grade is help each child identify their reason to read. Many struggling readers do not see the necessity in learning to read, which causes them to chronically stay behind grade level. But... this year is the game changer.

Jennifer Serravalo’s Go to Books give students the tools they need to see how these reading skills are applied to quality literature.

While exploring passion projects like caring for dogs the will read ebooks about day gs. My students will see reading as vital piece in achieving their goals. They will read for authentic reasons. They will read to prepare a recipe. They will read to program a robot. They will read to care for class pets.

In order for my students to have access to these higher level texts, they must have a repitore of comprehension strategies they can reference. Jennifer Serravalo’s reading strategies give students the skills necessary... to become great readers!

Students must see authentic reasons to read. Whether it is to help us reach a goal or just enrich our lives. Reading is Essential.
