My Students

I have an energetic community of 7 and 8 year olds. They are learners at all different stages in their learning journey. My students are friendly and caring for one another and love to teach me about their cultures.

What makes our school, and my classroom so unique is that our students overcome challenges before the day even starts.

Our school is the only Title 1 charter in the district. Since we are a charter school, our school requires families arrange transportation to and from school each day. Our families make it work without buses because they want the best for their students and so do I.

Please help us give these students the best!

My Project

Every classroom requires a community. I hope to reenergize the environment of my classroom community. I want to focus on building a stronger community. One tool that would help enable this would be the Qball microphone. I want more participation in circle gatherings and the ability to add movement into the day is invaluable. I want to also strengthen our community by engaging students in monthly response boards and would use a chalk board posting to have students question, answer, infer, and practice other second grade skills routinely. In addition, I'm reworking our daily reading and math practices to encompass more meaningful work. I hope to build a sense of community where students are empowered to make choices in their learning.

When students have some say in the matter, they are more motivated to complete the task.

Purpose + Choice= MOTIVATION! With the daily 5, students will make choices each day to work on a skill they choose: stamping, lacing, cube building or water painting to familiarize themselves with vocabulary or spelling patterns. While students engage in independent work I will be better able to meet in small groups with students and help them improve their skills on a more individual basis. With practice and support for students to become better readers, writers and mathematicians my students will become their best in no time.
