My Students

My students are hard-working, positive-thinking, and downright amazing. I tell my students every day that they are the best class in the school because they are. I teach students who love to learn and clap when I introduce new concepts to them. These kids love to learn!

My students learn best when they are given opportunities with hands-on learning.

They can often lose focus when learning from textbooks and worksheets. They are engaged and ready to learn when using manipulatives and engaging resource materials.

My Project

Many of my students are fine readers, however, they struggle with reading comprehension. I want to encourage my students to read to learn.

The Choose Your Own Adventure and Third Grade Detective series are books that force students to think and make decisions about their reading.

When reading Choose Your Own Adventure books, students get to choose which path the characters will take. They can re-read and choose different outcomes. The third grade detectives are a group of students who solve mysteries at their school and in their community. My students can read and try to solve the mystery before the characters do.
