My Students

My wonderful second graders live and attend school in an urban area. They come to school every day with positive attitudes and lots of enthusiasm to learn. My students are energetic, creative, and quite inquisitive. They love to read, write, and express themselves.

My students have a tremendous love for learning and try their best daily.

It is my goal to provide each one of them with the materials and instruction needed in order for them to achieve academic success.

My Project

A classroom carpet is an important and essential area in our second-grade classroom. The carpet is used as an important learning space for my students throughout the day. Many of my lessons begin with and conclude with students coming back together on the carpet to share their ideas, thoughts, and learning.

During language arts, students sit on the carpet for blending, read-alouds, guided reading, and discussions.

During our math block, students sit on the rug while we have number talks, review skills, and problem solve. The carpet is also an important part of our Writers' Workshop because that is where they sit while I teach mini-lessons and where they share their writing with their partners.
