My Students

I have a very inquisitive group of fifth graders. My students are so eager to learn and explore the world. These fifth graders come from low-income backgrounds and are mostly English learners. The students I teach have parents who work hard to provide for their family.

I have a very inquisitive group of 5th graders who love to research and learn about people, places and things!

Our school is located in a neighborhood where English is not spoken in many households. The parents of my students want the best for their children. They are dedicated to their children's education and expect their teachers to guide their child toward a path of success. I expect this of myself and want these kids to become lifelong learners and seek additional education after graduation. Many of my students would be the first in their families to attend college.

My Project

The Storyworks magazine is a monthly language arts curriculum full of exciting content across the genres combined with rich lesson plans, activity sheets, and videos, all created for the Common Core. One of the things I appreciate the most about this magazine is that the nonfiction, paired-texts, and debate features that appear in the print magazine are all available online at a lower-Lexile level. This will allow my students reading at a lower level the opportunity to still access the text and enjoy the reading.

Having Storyworks monthly magazine will allow me to reach struggling students and/or students who are not engaged in standard black and white text.

This magazine is aligned with the Common Core Standards, so I will also be able to give my students the practice they will need to succeed on the new standardized test. I have had the opportunity to use this magazine in the past and was able to witness students engaged and enjoying the articles and stories.
