My Students

My third grade students are truly wonderful. I teach in a low income area where all students in the school are provided a free, healthy breakfast and lunch. My group of students is a diverse group with various races, cultures, personalities, skills, etc. My students thrive on routine and consistency.

My group has been a joy to teach and it has been rewarding to challenge their minds and provide them with engaging and rigorous learning experiences.

They embrace challenges and enjoy learning new things. They are very invested in the classroom and I regularly give them a voice in classroom decisions, which they love!

My Project

These materials will help my students be able to learn and thrive in a calm, fun, organized, and relaxed environment. All the decorations and borders are all apart of a common theme and match (black, white, burlap with pops of color), offering a calm and organized environment. I don't want to do anything too bold or chaotic because I know my students would benefit more from a constant color scheme. The consistent color scheme and theme throughout the classroom will provide a sense of security and consistency for my students that they may not get at home. The motivational posters I have included will motivate and encourage my students to work hard and do their best, as third grade is a new testing grade for them. The bins and organization items will help the classroom be more organized as well as the students.

I want our space to be something that my students love, feel comfortable in, can be at peace in, learn and grow in and enjoy.

I believe all these materials that I have chosen will do so and I know my students will love them!
