My Students

I teach in a small town. Each student receives free breakfast and lunch. We have many students who come to school without having had breakfast at home. Our district also provides lunch for students throughout the summer months. We have very limited resources within our district, technology is one area that is very limited.

I teach 16 fun loving, adventure seeking, inquisitive first graders.

They are always ready to try something new and eager to learn and grow as individuals. Kindness and acceptance are qualities that I work hard at instilling in each of them. Creating a safe and comfortable classroom community is something we work hard at creating together. Each student brings their own unique personality that is celebrated and respected when it comes to their individual learning and learning style.

My Project

An easel is needed to increase engagement in learning with students and teacher. Morning messages are written on chart paper that is supported by an easel. Sharing the pen and working through math problems are all done on the easel. These can all be done using chart paper or the white board. Students are interested and eager to show others what they know.

A rug is the space where we can grow as a classroom community.

This is the space where we have morning meeting, we share things that will be happening throughout the day. On the rug students can face one another and share things with their peers. It is a safe space in the classroom, it helps to teach others to be respectful and kind listeners. The rug is also a space where we can do whole group learning. It is an important part of a classroom.
