My Students

I have over 700 uniquely important and talented readers that I have the opportunity to work with in our Media Center. Students come from many, diverse backgrounds and experiences. Our Learning Commons or Library Media Center is designed to be a place all students feel welcome. Throughout the day, you will see students searching for books, working in small groups, creating videos for our daily news show, reading in nooks, creating individual and group digital projects, and more.

Every day students come into the library searching for all types of books because they themselves are all so unique and special.

My students want to find books that excite them about connecting to the world, reading, and each other. Often, students will share with other students books they just finished and loved. Our older students diligently look for books based on the interests of their younger book buddies. We are definitely developing a culture of reading at our school and in our library!

My Project

These books will help EVERY interested student join this exciting Spring into Reading book club. Students in third through fifth grade voted to read Fuzzy Mud. One hundred students voted for the book they wanted to read for our book club. Forty-four students chose Fuzzy Mud over four other great books. All interested students and their families will be invited to read and connect with each other through this suspenseful novel. All students are able to participate regardless of family participation.

By reading Fuzzy Mud together, students and adults will develop deeper more meaningful connections with both each other and the book.

We will have the opportunity to connect with each other and discuss real world issues such as bullying, environmental issues, and being true to yourself. We will connect using Google Classroom, book club meetings during lunches, and a celebration when we finish the book.

***When we finish our book club, these novels will be available for teachers to use with an entire class and small reading groups. Students will also be able to borrow the books.***
