My Students

As Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." I teach fabulous fourth graders in an inner city school. My diverse population of students come from a low-income, high poverty district. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of our students have experienced trauma in their life.

Despite many hardships, my students come to school every day ready and eager to learn.

It is important that my students are engaged and excited about learning! They want to be in school because they want to learn so they can be successful in life.

My Project

Students should have a variety of texts available to them to enhance their reading comprehension. Storyworks provides a variety of genres in just one issue. Students have the opportunity to read nonfiction, fiction, informational text, plays, and poems. The magazines offer multiple reading levels which helps me accommodate the different levels in my classroom.

Students will stay engaged in their learning if they are interested in what they are reading.

I want to foster a love for reading. Storyworks is the perfect addition in the classroom because it provides spectacular photographs and incredible stories. The digital issue allows me to bring technology into the classroom. We can listen to the audio version of the story, or watch a video to enhance our learning! Storyworks will help prepare my students for a successful school year!
