My Students

My students have a true passion for reading. They absolutely love books and truly enjoy their independent reading time. This is a major part of our day as first grade is the year where children make the most growth in reading.

"Every student can learn just not on the same day or in the same way" -George Evans.

The students in my classroom are from many different cultures and each have their own story. They are some of the most kind and caring students I have had the pleasure of teaching. They have fully embraced the growth mindset and consistently encourage each other to persevere in daily tasks.

My Project

These materials will help my students organize their individual reading materials. The new book bins and book bags will help students maximize their time reading and book shopping for their 'just right' books. The book bags also help bring reading home. Each day the students bring home a smaller book bag with books they are able to read. Bringing reading home is essential for reading success and important for families who do not have access to books at home.

The other tools such as the word family dice, dominos, letter cubes and sight word games will assist students in learning important phonics skills in an engaging way.

A solid foundation of phonics knowledge is the key to becoming a successful reader. As a teacher I am always looking for engaging ways to introduce and practice important concepts. These tools will give me the ability to maintain an engaging and exciting learning environment.
