My Students

The students in my classroom are identified as gifted and talented! They are highly motivated to read, read and READ! We love having open discussions in small groups about the books we read. My students are very unique, and there is no limit to the challenges their brain can take on! They always surprise me with how much they can learn!

My Project

The gifted students in grades 3-5 need more challenging books! I am so excited to see how their love of reading will flourish with these engaging and thrilling books! My students love holding discussions and could talk about the books they are reading for hours. Research shows that student's growth in reading happens much faster in small group reading instruction, when students talk together about what they read. I want to incorporate more in-depth discussions about books, mirroring the skills these students will need for high school and college education!
