My Students

When you walk into the room, every child is quietly working on a worksheet while the teacher takes a few minutes to respond to parent emails. I would love to say that this is my room, but it is not and to be honest I do not want that type of room. I have children standing, sitting, yelling out answers and writing on their desktops. If emails were not sent to my phone, I don't think I would ever see them. I currently teach 21 boys and girls in a Title I school, with 59.3% of the students receiving a free or reduced-price lunch. My classroom is not a worksheet based classroom. We are a hands-on, get messy, and sometimes too loud kind of classroom. The boys and girls spend a lot of their time working with digital technology or showing their work on their desktop.

My Project

For the last few years, I have purchased capes for each child in my classroom. My classroom is a superhero-themed classroom. As the students accomplish specific goals for the grade expectations, I create and iron on a badge to their cape. Twice a year we invite the parents into having a cape of accomplishment ceremony. Here we celebrate the children for their progress. I iron on badges for mastering math facts, reading fluency, and perfect attendance. I also iron on badges for patriot pride, student of the month, and determination. I really enjoy making the capes and the children will treasure the memories. Please help me to continue the tradition.
