My Students

I am so thrilled to be teaching first grade this upcoming school year! I will be teaching at a Title One school in Anderson, South Carolina. The majority of my students will come from very low socioeconomic statuses. Many will need extra encouragement and a space centered around them. My goal is to ignite a love of learning within each of these students that will walk into my classroom each day. My goal is to make sure each one of them knows they WILL succeed!

My Project

Our class will be a place where EVERYONE can learn, a place centered around student learning. A lot of our time will be based upon small group instruction in reading, writing, and math. Small group instruction is such a vital part of how I plan to help each of my students reach their highest potential. Small group instruction will allow me to provide individualized instruction for each student, as well as a time for students to work alongside peers.

In order for small group instruction to be most effective, my class needs a kidney table.

This table will allow me to sit within close proximity to each student in the group (4-6 students) and be able to monitor each student's work quickly, while providing feedback and assistance.
