My Students

My kids are avid readers. Sometimes, we read and analyze stories as a whole class to make connections with relevant topics happening today. There is so much to learn from the characters in the stories we read. So much that directly impacts them in their day to day lives. My students are on the verge of pursuing their high school dreams. They are on the last leg of their middle school journey. They need the opportunity to see the beginning, middle and end to a story so they can find the relation themselves.

My Project

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, will help my two groups of kids with building our classroom community. By reading this book, we will learn about empathy and walking in someone else's shoes. We will also learn about trust and bravery. My students will have the opportunity to analyze and make connections to the characters and situations in the story. Throughout the school year, we will continue to draw from Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. This first story will really set the precedent for our entire school year. Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry will be used as a point of reference in the social arena as well as the academic arena.
