My 20 students are members of a third grade inclusion classroom in the middle of a large city. Inclusion classrooms in our district combine general education students (75%) and students with special needs (25%). Together, these diverse learners tackle grade-level content and standards.
They are eager to explore new academic content each day, and they learn best through hands-on experiences.
I am eager to build a comfortable and inspiring classroom environment, where students feel cared for and are engaged in learning.
Weekly news magazine deliveries will allow students (and families) to explore current events. As a whole group, we will discuss each week's major topic and respond to relevant writing prompts (opinion, evidence-based reasoning, compare and contrast) and explore non-fiction text features.
Students will be excited by the opportunity to learn from their very own copy of a real news source.
Every Friday, kids will take their magazines home to keep and to share with friends and family.
Relevant political and economic topics will motivate place-based learning experiences and will show students the power of their own voices, contributing to an end of year public speaking project.
