My Students

I teach at a Title I school, meaning that a majority of my students are economically disadvantaged. Additionally, about half of my students are considered at risk. Even with so many things stacked against them, I see their eagerness to learn and experience the world around them. With this in mind, I would like to provide them with as many engaging learning experiences as possible.

Excited and engaged students are students who are learning!

For this reason, I encourage a lot of movement and hands-on engagement in my classroom. Reading, Writing, and Math are all taught in a workshop format which allows for small group instruction as well as concrete hands-on center work for the students. They always look forward to their center times, because it is a time for them to engage with their learning with the materials as well as their peers. They learn just as much from one another as they do from me!

My Project

Center rotations are a daily occurrence in my classroom. It allows for students to continue practicing the skills they've been taught and need extra practice with. I like to change out my centers at least every week to keep it engaging for the students; however, finding engaging academic centers can be very difficult.

The centers I selected are geared toward improving reading, writing, and math skills that all second graders need in order to be successful in the third grade and beyond.

These center activities will allow practice for key skills such as phonics, reading comprehension, writing, financial literacy, place value, addition, and subtraction.
