My Students

I teach 4th grade ELA (two classes). My kiddos enjoy independent reading of nonfiction and fiction books in the classroom.

They are always curious and open to learning new things about the world around them.

They enjoy writing stories, and they are always eager to share their final writing piece with other students. I love seeing how my students use what we have learned in our writing mini-lessons; they incorporate what they have learned into their own writing to help them improve their writing pieces.

My Project

My students will have access to a variety of genres to choose from, which will increase their interest and fluency in reading! A variety of the reading and writing resources will help students make skill connections between reading and writing!

Students will be able to analyze how authors structure different selections of text, and they will also be able to make text-media connections.

Students can also analyze how text features are used and how certain text features help readers better understand the information in the selection.

The students analyze how the author uses words in a text, and the students try to incorporate a similar style to their own writing.
