My Students

I just started in a brand new classroom teaching 3rd Grade. I know the population of my new students are going to need an environment that is warm, inviting, and condusive for optimal learning. I want them to have a quiet space for Morning Meetings, small group discussions, independent reading and a safe place to go when they need to regroup. I have worked with many students facing trauma in their lives, so a calming space where they feel safe and nurtured is important. I am looking for a large classroom rug and small cushions or a calming corner.

Thank you!

My Project

We have a morning meeting each day. This is a time to set the stage for learning. We discuss what we will be doing that day, greet one another, and talk about character development and anti-bullying. Its a time to get to know each other on a deeper level and address any classroom issues as a whole group to gain deeper understanding.

Many of my students have emotional and behavioral problems and need constant feedback and assurances that this classroom will provide them with a safe nuturing environment and where others are accepted for their differences.

Students also need a quiet place to retreat when doing silent reading or when they need to "cool down" when they get emotional.
