My Students

My students are so loving, creative, and enthusiastic about learning! They show up to school ready to learn each day. I am always so impressed with their willingness to work and learn something new!

I am beyond blessed to be able to teach these tiny humans every day.

Their love for learning encourages me to be a better teacher for them!

My Project

These books will be used as read alouds in the classroom where I can effectively model fluency, expression, thinking out loud, and understanding texts. These books have been researched and chosen by fabulous teachers as books that can help enhance reading and writing instruction.

The books chosen easily captivate readers attention and also teach a variety of genres.

I will use these books weekly in my reading and writing instruction to engage my students in their learning. Having these books in my classroom to use with my reading instruction will put a smile on my students' faces and I know they will continue to be excited for reading each day!
