My Students

I have 20 students in my classroom this year. I encourage positive relationships and individual responsibility for behavior and learning. Daily, we practice communication when feelings are hurt. Students learn to apologize and ask for forgiveness. We use Inupiaq Traditional Values to guide our behavior. The majority of students are Alaskan Native, so using Inupiaq Traditional Values comes naturally and links home and school. Providing these positive social-emotional skills helps create a safe learning environment for everyone to grow and learn.

My Project

Presently our book boxes are purchased by me and what is affordable are cardboard book boxes. Students can choose books on their own from the classroom library. I put 3 books based on the students' independent individual reading level, and there is one book from the school's library once a week. The book boxes begin to wear out mid-year and barely make it through the year, but with tough tape, they can last.

These durable book boxes provide a long-lasting option that should last for many years.

Math games are very popular in my class. We have math games twice a week as part of our math centers. Having enough materials for students to use in small groups is important. Having independent access to games promotes responsibility for materials and choice. The 5 drawer organizer can provide independent access to math games, as well as choice.
