My Students

We are a classroom of third graders, we moved up together from second grade. We are like a family. We love to read, love to learn and we enjoy our days together. We have been working on building relationships and learning how to work together.

My thoughtful students love to use technology, collaborate, and think with a growth mindset, and we celebrate success.

We love working with other classrooms and finding ways to creatively collaborate with others. We welcome and leave our door open to ideas and experiencing new ways to learn.

My students are in the process of becoming thoughtful readers, writers, scientists, historians, and mathematicians. We are all involved in the process of learning. We aim for excellence and celebrate growth. We are a family who encourages and supports one another.

My Project

This year marks the 10th anniversary of an amazing global literacy initiative put together by Pernille Ripp. During a six week period, children throughout the world, will read and connect with discussion, art work, Twitter chats, postcard exchanges and more. The books chosen for 2019 were recently announced and are what I am requesting in this project. The picture books are all written by Yuyi Morales and are a great choice for adding multicultural text to our room.

Global education and collaboration makes a remarkable difference in the lives of children.

They find how much they think alike and that differences are okay. We can build relationships based on literacy, connecting through discussion and written work. Pernille chooses books that are a catalyst for important conversations and inspire empathy, kindness and positive character in all.

I would love for my children to have the books available in our classroom so they may pour over them, reading and rereading them. My past experiences show these books become important throughout the year and leave a beautiful memory with the experience of the Global Read Aloud project.
