My Students

The students in our classroom engage in new learning opportunities with enthusiasm and gusto. Opportunities that allow them to see the world beyond the city are few and far between.

More than 80% of our student population has difficulty securing basic living needs including food and housing.

For many students, school is the highlight of their day, knowing that is where breakfast and lunch are provided. The majority are English Language Learners, whose parents are first generation immigrants.

Our classroom is an exciting learning environment where we come together from diverse backgrounds to collaborate with each other as we engage in hands-on active inquiry and digital learning experiences.

Our classroom has become an integral part of their success in helping them feel secure, included and encouraged. The sense of community that we have built allows each child the opportunity to explore their beliefs and ideas in a safe environment.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our classroom project!

My Project

In our classroom, we begin each lesson with a 'mini-lesson', a brief introduction as to what we will be focusing on during our center rotations. After our mini-lesson, students will rotate through a variety of activities designed to allow them the opportunity to practice their skills and apply them in other learning situations.

As a teacher, it is great to hear how much students enjoy a particular assignment or learning activity, especially if it allows for hands-on interaction and engagement with a topic or idea.

These can games, bingo sets, and practice folders will be beneficial in allowing students the opportunity to self-assess where they need additional practice, and choose the appropriate instructional tool.
