Product Description

Close reading toolbox!

Close Reading

The language arts standards talk extensively about conducting close reads. A common best practice is to have students “read with a pencil”. This allows them to find evidence, quotes, etc. directly from the text to mark and review later. I have created this toolbox page with common symbols for my class to use. They make these marks as they go along the passage (during the 1st read) so we can come back and discuss them later (usually during the 2nd and 3rd reads).

If it is a book/selection that they can’t write on, I give them small sticky notes to write these symbols on. That way they can still delve into a text without wrecking the book!

ENJOY!!!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for five years. I taught fifth grade for a year, a third-fourth split and straight third for the other years. Before I received my teaching license I worked with a preschool and an afterschool program that served Title 1 students K-6. I have been selected by my district to lead professional developments on the language arts and math common core. There, I trained teachers of all ranges in the new standards.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in using Whole Brain Teaching. It actively encourages students to participate in a fun, yet controlled, manner. Students learn more when they are speaking, explaining, and showing all at the same time.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I received my Master's degree in Instructional Design and Teacher of the Year award from my school district.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my Bachelors from the University of Utah. While there, also received my English as a Second Language (ESL) endorsement. Two years later I graduated with my Masters of Education, Instrucational Design.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love what I do! I find it thrilling to come to work everyday and help my students learn and grow. I love finding new and exciting ways to teach my students that are researched based and tied to the common core.
