My Students

I'm sure this has been said and heard time and time again, but my students are "my kids." Each year is a special and unique group, but they always have one thing in common. My students need to feel loved and important.

Sure, math and reading are essential, but my biggest job is to make sure my kiddos are confident and kind leaders.

I want them to know that there are people out in this world rooting for them. I hope my classroom is a place of fun, comfort and lots of rich experiences.

My kiddos come from great families, but families that work and work just to make ends meet. The majority of my students have a life where they "get what they need" and rarely "what they want."

With that being said, if you were able to look in my classroom, you are going to see fresh smiles every morning. You will see kiddos that love life and are eager to learn...unless it is Monday morning writing, AHHH. Only kidding, kinda.

Just know, if you choose us, you are supporting a beyond wonderful group of 4th graders.

My Project

My kiddos and I are requesting a variety of interesting books for guided reading.

Guided reading is an incredibly important part of our literacy block.

There are many wonderful benefits to guided reading. Guided reading is a time that my students develop as readers, and I am there for support and scaffolding. The kiddos learn skills and strategies that they will need for independent reading. Having great/high interest books for guided reading is critical. I know with the books we have selected, my kiddos will be motivated and excited about working through their text. These wonderful books will help all my kiddos become strong, independent lovers of reading.
