My Students

I teach four different reading classes at my fifth grade academy which totals about 100 students. My class is made up of a diverse learning group coming from all walks of life. Some of them have no books at home, yet desire to find something interesting to read. They have begun a new school year off on the right foot.

Each of my students are ready to learn and read new books.

This attitude they have displayed is so exciting to see. These students are our future, and it is my desire to offer the best instruction and resources to best meet their learning needs.

My Project

These materials offer students a chance to see what is going on in other places outside out our small town in North Georgia. In my classroom, the magazines will be used for students to read independently and in small groups. In the small group settings, students will develop a sense of communication as they collaborate with their peers on the various articles being read.

Another important aspect of the magazines is that it exposures students to go to places where they may never get to go.

These articles also provide topics that can meet a wide range of student interest keeping them motivated to read. Reading a variety of text structures is important in a child's development of reading.
