My Students

Our school is a public charter school located in Ohio. It is a kindergarten through eighth grade building with most, if not all, of the students falling below the poverty line. Since we are also a Title I school, all of the children receive free breakfast and lunch. Our school is a warm and friendly place where kids can grow and learn.

Third grade is the crucial year when students make the leap from learning to read to reading to learn.

It’s the year that students move from learning to read decodable words using their knowledge of the alphabet to reading to learn for understanding and comprehension. We work together on learning language arts and social studies skills embedded into workstations with playful and engaging activities.

My Project

A well-organized classroom sends a clear and positive message to students: This room was created for you, with your specific needs in mind, because you and your learning are important. Without it, even a generously sized room can diminish students' sense of ease and autonomy and limit their learning.

Staying organized is the key to a successful classroom.

Center activities have small materials that are used often in the classroom, it helps to store them in colored tubs or containers to make them easy to access. Adding labels helps the students know clearly where the items are, and where to put them back.
