My Students

I am a ELA teacher of 60 third graders. I teacher two classes of thirty students. One of my classes has thirty students, and is a English Second Language class. My other ELA class, is a mixture of English Second Language learners and gifted students.

My classes are filled with students who are eager to learn comprehension strategies to help increase understanding of text.

My overall goal is to create a classroom that supports the love of reading in school and in the real world.

My Project

I am a ELA team teacher. I teach two sets of thirty students throughout the day. Students must travel from classroom to classroom. The pencil pouches will allow for a smooth transition. Students will have a pouch to keep all of their materials together and ready to use. They will put their dry erase markers in their pouches and we will use them for quick reviews on their mini white boards. I will use the laminator and pouches to save the wonderful ELA masterpieces that my children create throughout the year.

All supplies will be used by my students to help enhance their Reading experiences throughout the day.
