My Students

I teach twenty-three energetic 3rd graders in a small coastal town in South Carolina. My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds and represent various ethnicities, learning styles, and ability levels. My students are hard workers, very busy, enjoy working together and love using technology. Every day we are learning new ideas and applying our learning during hands-on activities. We love to work around the room during partner work and stations. My students are problem solvers and are eager to try new things. They enjoy having a choice in their learning and are developing their independence everyday.

My Project

My students love working in spaces that feel comfortable and cozy to them. In my classroom, I have implemented the "Daily 5." This is a structure to make classrooms a more effective reading environment. One of the components is called "Read to Self." This allows students to move about the room and sit comfortably as they read a book of their choosing to themselves.

We do so much work where students can spread out around the room and find a place that is comfortable for them.

These bean bag chairs are amazing for students to be comfortable while sitting on the floor. They can seat multiple students at once and students have to work to figure out how to share and work together. Students LOVE having alternative places to sit, that feel comfortable!
