My Students

Being a kid can be hard, but when you do not have the emotional understanding to express your feelings, it can cause behavioral problems. My classroom is a safe space for students to learn how to deal with their emotions, trauma and social skills.

My class is made up of students from various grade levels and ability levels.

We work hard to fill in learning gaps and have students reach grade level. My students are dealing with emotional issues that make it hard for them to handle frustration with tasks and need a lot of individual attention.

By learning to work independently and with purpose, my students will have the chance to mainstream into other classrooms with their peer groups. Our biggest goal with my students is for them to learn not only to control their emotions but to learn how to be students. Modeling good classroom routines and tasks is important for them to master and move back into general education classrooms.

My Project

My classroom will create a behavior book club to help students learn the basics of behaviors and emotions through childhood classic books. Students will have access to a bookcase full of behavior books that will be utilized as a valuable resource to teach students how to successfully express emotions and behaviors. Books will be displayed on the bookcase for easy access to students and teachers.

These books provide a fun alternative to direct instruction to teach the basics of behavior.

These books will be used for critical thinking and hands-on activities for extension activities. Students various behavior and emotional needs will be addressed in a whole group and small group activities in a fun and growth mindset way!
