My Students

My students are sixth graders at a middle school in Wisconsin.

The school has a diverse population including students from around the world and students with special needs.

The reading needs of my students also vary greatly. Some students read far above grade level and others are delayed in their skills. We have many students who receive free or reduced lunch, and some who are homeless. My classroom is culturally and economically diverse. I see my students every day for English/Language arts and social studies.

My Project

I encourage my students to create posters, games, their own children's books, maps, and charts. The art supplies will help my students be creative and excited about completing projects in both language arts and social studies.

Every year my students learn how to cross-stitch as part of our Middle Ages unit in social studies.

The needles, thread, and fabric will allow them to design and create their own hands-on project. This has become one of our favorite projects throughout the years and my students will sit quietly for long periods of time, working diligently to create wonderful bookmarks stitched with their names! The bookmarks are a wonderful remembrance of their first year in middle school.

Last year we literally ran out of chairs at my school. The new stools will provide much-needed seating around the tables in my classroom.
