My Students

I am in a unique situation in which I taught 3rd grade last year, and am now moving to 4th grade. The added bonus is that I get to take my entire class with me! The benefit of this model, known as "looping", is that I already know my learners very well. I know their strengths and weaknesses, what engages them, and also what challenges they are ready to take on!

Being able to take risks in a dependable classroom community has proven to be the most powerful component of these students success!

They work together, experience both frustration and triumph together, and most importantly share in achievement together.

My students experience a diverse range of circumstances at home. We live in a transient area with high poverty and high crime activity. Sometimes school is the only place that is consistent for my kids. I strive to provide a place where they feel accepted and successful.

My Project

I have been working on building a collaborative classroom for my students. One addition I made to my classroom this year was transitioning from desks to tables. So far it has worked out great! There is just one problem... Where do they put their binders and notebooks?! Ah, logistics.

With this project I hope to obtain enough large book bins for the students to store their binders and spiral notebooks during the day.

The book bins measure 5.3 inches long, a perfect fit for their 2 inch binders and 4 spiral notebooks. Just the organizational tool we need in our classroom this year!
