Ms. Stubblefield’s Classroom Edit display name

https://www.donorschoose.org/classroom/1572870 Customize URL

I have a class of 23 first grade students. The majority of my classroom is filled with rambunctious, fun-loving boys and a handful of studious girls. My students are science sponges who love learning about animals, insects, weather, and of course dinosaurs. As a new teacher, in a district with very little start up funding, I have few books and resources. Each week I go to the city library in order to find books for our science units. The books I find typically are not on my students' reading levels but they pore over them during our readers workshop time. When I read these books in class, the discussion is always lively. It is easy to see the spark for learning that each teacher longs to see. My students especially enjoy using magnifying glasses and making notes about the pictures they see. We spend a lot of time learning the difference between nonfiction and fiction books so that children will understand how to use them in the future. Having individual practice will be invaluable!
