As the gifted teacher for grades K-5, I serve some of the most creative, fun-loving and curious students in the school. We are a Title One School and 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most of my students struggle to pay for the activities that students in the gifted programs at other schools in our system get to participate in.
My students are excited to come to me once a week for a whole day to participate in fun, hands-on activities and learn new things in an out of the box way.
The learning that takes place in our room supports and extends what takes place in their regular classroom in a project based environment. We spend most of our time working together in cooperative groups.
My kiddos are highly motivated and they love to learn new things. They are full of questions and enjoy investigating the answers to their questions. My goal is to continue to foster their love and excitement for learning!
A class set of Where is the Great Barrier Reef? will allow us to learn more about the ocean habitat and work on reading fluency and comprehension at the same time. My students will be experts on the Great Barrier Reef!
Students often have a preconceived notion about non-fiction text, but I hope this book will help them realize that non-fiction can be just as enjoyable to read as a novel.
This book is a great informational text! It provides facts in an interesting and exciting way with eye-catching illustrations to hold the reader's interest.
