My Students

An average day in my classroom includes students engaging with each other in authentic ways. I implement whole brain teaching and utilize muscle memory learning techniques. Collaborating to dig deeper into content happens daily. Students are exposed to technology and are taught valuable computer skills. They are able to explain their thinking and work through screencasts, Google Classroom, video chats and much more.

I teach between 30 and 40 of the most resilient children.

We are a Title I school where all students are offered both free breakfast and lunch. It is located in an impoverished area. Kids come to school empty-handed, often unable to provide their own supplies for the year. Many of these kids have experienced traumas at an incredibly young age that are beyond what I can even fathom.

My Project

The materials for this project will allow for my students to do a multitude of things. I have noticed on Fridays my students tend to be absent the most. To combat this and to also build community, I would love to be able to host a weekly Friday pancake breakfast using the emoji pan. I want them to have an opportunity to take care of a garden together. Additionally, I'd love to incorporate Royal Reader into our routine where each student will have the chance to write and read or read a book to the whole class while wearing the robe, crown, and using the scepter. I also would love to create a reward box for all their diligent work and move away from food. My students also operate well with visual materials and the visual timers would be helpful for them to manage their time. Our class also loves to celebrate growth by making cookies together and eating them together. I really want to work toward creating an even stronger community in my classroom and all of these materials would support that goal.
