My Students

A typical day in our 4th grade room starts with smiles at the door. There is a sense of joy that makes our classroom special-the students love to learn! They love to set their own goals and surprise themselves when they see their own potential. I love observing this!

A large percentage of our students fall below the poverty line, yet still come to school everyday with a positive outlook and they are eager to learn.

I am particularly proud to be educating 4th graders in my classroom; as they are building a strong knowledge-base and habits to prepare themselves for middle school next year. The thing I love most about my school is how we integrate so many different methods of teaching.

My Project

My students LOVE to read! They especially all love to read and discuss the same book.

In addition, most of my students have very limited reading resources at home.

Reading comprehension is so imperative to a student's success in school and in their future. A class set of Wonder will allow us to complete a novel study in our classroom. Completing novel studies is one of my students favorite things to do in the 4th grade. We explore new vocabulary in the book as we read, and complete enriching literature activities about the novel, such as reports, summaries, creating illustrations and acting out certain parts of the book. It will also help instill a love of reading for my students. It helps for each student to have their own copy so they can take it home and read and complete novel study activities!
