I teach 8-9 years old who have a love for school. Each day they are becoming scientists, explorers, mathematicians, readers and learning how to navigate in the world inside and outside of school. My students are becoming a united front and each and every day we work towards fostering an inclusive community in our room.
We all come from a mix of backgrounds and we use that to help build our learning and understanding for each other.
We are 3rd graders learning from all different stages. We try our best to succeed, but know we accountable partners to help us when we get stuck.
My students and I spend each morning reading or discussing an issue they may come across in real life. Recently, they have been engaging more and more with picture books that have a foundational, emotional lesson they can relate to. It's been a great practice to start their day and get them thinking about how they can treat others who may have a tough situation. Currently, we do writing responses to the books in our journals, but the students have been asking if they can have a special spot for them to go and continue to look at as the year goes on. The 10 drawer cart will give my students the space they have been asking for to keep their responses safe and easily accessible for others to read and reflect on as well. My students have been working all year on being more mindful, empathetic, and thinking about how they can help someone who is struggling.
