My Students

I teach 8-9 year old students, in a third grade classroom. Our classroom community is culturally and academically diverse. My students range largely in academic ability and learning styles. The academic abilities in my room range from first grade to fourth grade, in the areas of reading and mathematics. My students love to have fun, to play, and challenge me to come up with ways of learning that I may not have been exposed to previously.

We strive to have a comfortable classroom and open space for communicating positively and learning in a way that suits each one of us.

My Project

This year, I implemented a new snack process in the classroom and it has been very effective for my students. We were generously donated our first round of snacks through DonorsChoose, but we are running low. The snacks on this list are the favorites that flew off the shelves.

Providing students a daily snack choice, on their own time, has created a positive and open classroom environment.

Each day students go to the snack cupboard whenever they feel they need a snack. If they do not feel they need a snack throughout the day, they may grab it at the end of the day to bring home with them where they may not have snack options available. This process has worked beautifully and the students really appreciate having snack options at their fingertips that they get to select and enjoy to keep them focused and moving through the school day.
