My Students

This classroom is a 6th grade core class that focuses on reading, writing, and ancient civilizations. Our mission at our school is to provide a rigorous education that includes critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity.

In our co-taught classroom, we focus on differentiation to challenge students and to support them.

Students are understanding who they are and how they learn best through activities and reflections in class. Focusing on respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness, students learn to become independent motivated learners. In our classroom, we live to think outside of the box and be innovators.

My Project

This project will bring a variety of book genres and reading level into the classroom library. Students are constantly looking for good books to read. Having some new books in the library will motivate my students to read more outside of our whole class reading time.

We use an independent reading system that requires students to read on their own every day.

These books will help give students more options when it comes to choosing a new book to read. These books were written for my age group of students in mind with different reading levels. These varieties of books will be a great addition to the classroom library.
