Welcome to my 5th grade class room. I teach ELA and Social Studies to a total of 50 students in Bedford, Ohio. I love the curriculum that I get to teach! My school has over 80% of students receiving free and reduced lunches. We are a high needs school with many motivated students eager to learn as much as they can.
"Readers without the power to make their own choices are unmotivated"- The book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller.
Students are more successful and grow in the love of reading if they are organized to respond to reading. Students love to read and interacting with their reading will enhance and cultivate their love of reading.
Students in my 5th grade inclusion classroom are working/ learning all together. However the learning levels in my classroom are at varying levels,. By getting the book, Fish in a Tree, students are brought into the character's world of dyslexia. By reading this book, students are immersed in a student's life with the struggles in school.
Albert Einstein wrote, “Everybody is a genius.
But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
As students read and experience character's lives, they are opened to a world outside of their own. Bringing literature to my students in a reading as a whole class, it builds content knowledge and sympathy for others in the class and community. This project will provide students with content knowledge as well as building their empathy and sympathy of others.
