Hello!

  • WELCOME!
    Thank you for visiting my teacher webpage!  Here is a list of things students will learn about in class.

    GENRE STUDY
    • Reading biographies of various famous people: Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, Harriet Tubman, Jesse Owens, Anne Frank, Colin Powell, Susan B. Anthony
    • Noticing that all biographies have similar characteristics
    • Having students use what they've learned about the genre to "think like a teacher" and create their own list of comprehension questions.
    FLUENCY
    • Reading from scripts to improve expression
    • Recording their oral reading and conferencing with me about their strengths and challenges
    VOCABULARY & WORD ATTACK SKILLS
    • Learning root words --because fluent readers have learned how to break words into parts and then put them back together again.
    • Studying Wordly Wise vocabulary, root words, and literary elements through my class account on Quizlet.com.
    • Trying to compete against their classmates for the highest score on Quizlet.com
