My Students

I have the pleasure of working in the best public school within our county. This year I have 36 enthusiastic third-grade students. My students are creative, eager, and full of excitement. They love to participate in hands-on activities that promote their creativity and enhance their experiences in the classroom. My students work hard every day to meet my demands and they meet their goals because of their passion and interest for learning. They have inspired me to go beyond my limits, They are eager to transform their learning environment to a more modern space that caters to flexible seating and technology.

My Project

My goal for this project is to create an environment where my students will be able to learn to the best of their abilities. The items on my wishlist will help my students engage in reading activities that will increase their reading fluency.

The Flashlights will be implemented for an activity called Flashlight Fridays for a minimum of thirty minutes of independent reading.

These flashlights, batteries and lanterns will encourage students to increase their reading goals. The flexible seating cushions, wobble stools, and canopy will provide my students with a more comfortable space during class instruction. The two laptops will provide more access to students during technology DI time. I cannot wait to see our students enjoy these new materials.
