My Students

"Creativity is the secret sauce to science, technology, engineering and math" - Ainissa Rameirez.

My room is full of inquisitive students.

Our classroom is an ever changing environment as we strive to reach Common Core standards while still enjoying the process. One of my greatest goals is to help my students learn how to further their learning by asking their own questions and also how to seek the answers.

My students are amazingly determined at a Title I school. We have adopted a growth mindset this year which states that anyone can learn anything. Students truly take this to heart and rise to each and every challenge they encounter.

At our school approximately 35% of our students receive a lunch that is either free or at a reduced price. My students have never let this slow them down. School is a level playing field for them and they eagerly take advantage of the support and wealth of knowledge they receive. In my room, we focus on learning while having fun. We love to laugh and explore concepts authentically. I seek to create lessons and design activities that my students will enjoy.

My Project

My class needs our own set of the book Kids at Work. When each student has a copy of the group text they are able to hold the book closely, follow along and refer back to any given page to find text evidence to support their thinking. I use the C.I.A. strategy developed by Sarah Collinge and this is by far one of my student's favorite books year in and year out. This strategy embeds common core instructional goals and strategies; the best part is that my students get to enjoy high quality literature while they learn. This book also sparks cross subject discussions as we study the struggle for independence and later civil rights for all people.

Holding a physical book gives each student power over their own learning.

I am asking for a class set of Kids at Work to enable each of my students the opportunity to read and access this highly engaging text.
