My Students

I teach 23 fourth graders who are eager to learn. My classroom is not just a place to learn, it is also a place where my students discover that they are able to change the world through the choices and decisions they make in their lives.

The majority of students at my school receive free or reduced-price lunch, meaning they qualify for at least part, if not all, of the cost of their meals to be paid for by the district due to low parent income at home.

Many of my students come from low-income​ homes and this can negatively impact their ability to learn successfully.

I teach students at all levels, from above level, to on level, to below level. However, they all come to school wanting to learn with positive attitudes about school, no matter what is going on in their lives. They are hard workers who want to do good things with their lives and they know it starts here in the classroom.

My Project

In 4th grade, students learn A LOT of different reading and grammar skills that they are tested on at the end of the school year. Reviewing these skills each day will not only help to make them stronger readers, but also allow them the opportunity to review what we have already covered in class. When students struggle with content, a great way to become better is through practice. These daily language practice journals will help my students practice the skills they need daily to be successful on our state test at the end of the school year.

The best way to get better is to practice, practice, practice and the daily use of these journals during our reading center time will help my strongest readers improve and review their skills, as well as help my struggling readers by having them practice the same skills in small group with me, and as a center rotation.

Students can only get better through repeated practice, and these journals will help my students review in a fun and engaging way.
