My Students

Welcome to my 3rd grade classroom! I teach at a Title I school where approximately 90% of the students at our school receive free or reduced-price lunch, and many come from single-parent, low-income households.

My classroom is very culturally diverse, and I have several students in my class who speak English as a second language.

Despite the challenges that my students are faced with, they come to school very eager to learn and willing to try new things. My favorite thing about my class is how my students love, accept, and celebrate each other despite their differences.

My Project

My students love classroom transformations. They provide students with a fun and engaging learning environment to help them stay actively engaged in classroom instruction. I would like to transform my classroom into a construction site, a glow room, and a detective agency. The decor I selected will help me accomplish this goal. The card stock and ink will be used to print lessons to go along with these themes, and the storage bins and pencil bags will be used to store materials.

These resources would help me provide my students with engaging, memorable classroom learning experiences.

This not only makes the classroom fun and unique, but it also improves student learning by helping them connect better to what I'm teaching. When connections are made, students have a better chance at retaining information. Please help me transform our classroom.
