My Project

We are a class of 27 curious, innovative, and creative fourth graders! My students are learning to be strong leaders and develop personal responsibility inside the classroom and out. My students love to dive deeper into their learning with a variety of reading resources to discover opportunities that give them choice and responsibility in their education. I incorporate a variety of different learning strategies, teaching methods, and seating options to meet the needs of all of my students. My students love to learn and grow each day!

Many of the books in our classroom library are falling apart because they have been read and loved by many students.

It is now time to replace some, add books that are multicultural in content and support different genders and races. My students also work in book club groups. I would like to finish a few book club sets I have started and add some new and diverse books to our book club choices.
