My Students

My class is made up of mostly Hispanic children who are from various backgrounds. There are several different levels of language ability including some students who are brand new to our country. I love seeing how my students support each other and help their classmates learn English. They are very kind and compassionate children.

I have an amazing group of fourth-grade students this year.

They are all very special and continue to astound me every day with their curiosity, learning, and their kind hearts. I can honestly say I love working with these children because of their awesome personalities.

My school is a Title I school in VA. Many students here come from low-income families. We are fortunate to have some partners in education that help students with basic school supplies, backpacks, food bags, and even winter coats. It is such a blessing to have a community that supports education and I want to do my part to give my students the best Fourth-grade year ever.

My Project

My students are struggling to find the motivation to read books for fun. I got a suggestion from another teacher to use Flashlight Friday to get kids excited about reading. Students get to snuggle up with a good book and a flashlight to read without the overhead lights. With this twist on independent reading time, students are more likely to be engaged in their books.

I also added some whisper phones to my request because I currently only have five in my classroom.

I have several students, though, who request the use of the whisper phones so they can hear themselves reading. This is a great tool to help students boost their fluency and comprehension.
