My Students

My school works strongly promotes students with active minds that are ready and willing to learn something new. After providing guidance we see students that are eager to accept challenges, capable of working through obstacles, and have a persistence to learn something new. This never give up attitude, along with the ability to collaborate with one another makes them shine.

The students who enter my classroom come with a variety of skills and ability levels.

My library media classes consist of grades K-5 and classroom sizes of about 25 students. Many of these students are English Second Language learners, some have developmental and physical disabilities, while all are unique and capable learners in their own way.

My Project

All students require the skills to interact in socially appropriate ways with others. Using the social emotional books selected in this project, students will be presented with literary scenarios that build resilience and adaptability to a variety of challenging daily situations resulting in a more mindful citizen.

Each story teaches students to be aware and focus on the present moment while learning to express kindness, self-control, empathy, and respect.

These books are used in daily lessons to focus on helping students develop mindfulness in their daily lives. The stories are read aloud during class time with activities that reinforce the social emotional skill being taught. Classroom activities may include role playing scenarios with peers, whole class, or small group discussion as well as independent projects.

The goal of this whole project is to create mindfulness in students that extends into every aspect of their lives!
