My Students

My school is an amazing community of diverse learners. Although we have a high poverty rate, our students love coming to school to learn. It's an environment of excitement, learning, growth, and friendship!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

This project was created to help students gain access to a variety of non-fiction books. Throughout the year, students will use the "Who Was..." series to read about important people in history and create a book report.

Students will love having a wide range of new books to indulge in.

Being able to read a wide variety of non-fiction texts will support students during 5th grade. Students will be able to use the hanging organizer to store their books nicely during small group sessions. Providing students with the opportunity to access and read books is essential. Help me provide my students with the resources they need to be successful in 5th grade.
