Welcome to the Reading Room!

This year I'll be servicing K-5 students. I'm looking forward to the new challenge and I'll be working closely with classroom teachers to help our students become better readers.

On this site you'll find links to websites we're using in class but can be used at home as well. If you find links that aren't working please let me know. As of Sept the links are mainly K-3. My goal is to add links for the older students throughout the year.

As the year progresses I'll be posting podcasts and videos of the students reading as well as projects we complete.

This site is always a work in progress and will be changing throughout the year.

This year I'll be using the beanies shown above to help teach decoding and comprehension skills. I have one of each but would like to have 6 of each so every child can hold one when we are working on a particular skill. If you have any laying around your home and would like to donate one to our class please send it to our class. I'm looking for: snake, parrot, lion, eagle, spider, bear, chameleon, owl, dog, raccoon, kangaroo, monkey, fish and a frog.

This is our class mascot, Jack.

This is Jack, my reading mascot. You can read two books about Jack here
and here.

Here are a few more shots of my classroom.
