My Students

My rising third graders are amazing young people! They bring a huge diversity of reading, writing and math assets to the classroom. Many are emergent bilinguals. They are all creative, and they have tons (I mean tons) of energy.

My students don't always have equitable access to the materials and experiences they need, compared to their peers in other schools.

We are a Title I elementary school in the Mission / Castro area that serves multiple vibrant and often-marginalized communities.

My Project

My classroom has been ALIVE and BUZZING with all of the new books and materials we have gotten over the last year.

Now, we're almost to 4th grade.

Up for these last 11 weeks are topics that will be crucial next year - fractions, and higher-level character analysis.

This specific magnetic fraction kit is going to help the whole class build their conceptual understanding of fractions as related to the tape diagrams they've been using to understand addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

And the specific books listed here are going to be perfect for the students' end of year character analysis projects.

Thank you so so much for everything you have done already to make our classroom such a warm, welcoming and exciting place to learn!
