My Students

This upcoming year I will have the privilege of moving from fourth grade all subjects to fifth grade English Language Arts and Science. I will have sixty-six energetic students, twenty-three of which are my current students. My classroom also includes many English Learners from many different countries. They really enjoy working together in small groups as well as with partners. My students love hands-on activities, projects, and anything messy.

My students really enjoy reading and responding to literature.

They enjoy coming to school daily and always put their best foot forward! They work hard in everything they do and are always respectful of one another.

My Project

Reading comprehension is one of the most difficult skills for many students. It takes a lot of hard work and practice in order to be able to fully comprehend difficult text. One way to aid in reading comprehension is through the use of note-taking. Note-taking allows students to write down important parts of the text that they can refer back to when responding to literature.

My students will benefit greatly from having Read, Note, and Respond journals to support their reading comprehension.

They will be able to have daily practice in note-taking and using their notes to respond to prompts. This will strengthen their reading as they work together on their daily journals.
