My Students

Have you ever desired to do something just out of reach? My students are inquisitive and driven. They are always looking to answer the next question and reach their next goal.

While they all have their own personal goals all of them truly understand the importance of reading and focus on that.

Even though they do not have all the same access to high quality literature they continue to push themselves to reach their reading goals. They never give up on themselves!

My Project

My students come to my classroom with a wide range of reading abilities. My students want to read the wonderful chapter books that they see their peers read, but aren't able to read them on their own.

Reading books like Because of Mr. Terupt aloud whole class allows all of my students access to high quality literature.

This is incredibly important because all of my students are able to understand and have rich discussions that otherwise wouldn't have been possible.

This improves their comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, and most importantly their confidence. I have seen the growth in a reader that happens when they finish a wonderful book.
