My Students

This is my third year of teaching and I have the pleasure of teaching a class that is filled with twenty-four, sweet, South Carolina students. Part of my job is to make sure my students have a safe and fun environment in which to learn so they will have a good outlook about school. I have the privilege to help change the lives of children and I want nothing but the best for my class. My students are between seven and eight years old and they are learning some of the hardest things they will ever learn: reading, writing, and sharing. They love being at school and having a fun environment to learn in. My students come from all walks of life and I want each student to have the best chance to succeed.

My Project

One of the most important things in a classroom is the environment. In my classroom I believe in rewarding positive behavior and good choices. One of the ways that I do so is by using brag tags. They earn the brag tags, which are used as money, and at the end of the month that go shopping from things in my treasure box. I am in need of things to replenish my treasure box, like the stress balls and puzzle balls to make sure they have items they want to work hard at getting. The plastic storage containers will help me keep these items organized and separated so they are better able to find what they are looking for on shopping day.

I want to have a very welcoming and calming classroom environment that promotes learning.

We have very bright florescent lights in my classroom. I have lamps all over the room but sometimes you really need the over head lighting. They are super bright and studies show florescent lights negatively affect learning. The Pete the Cat and soft white light filters will be used to soften the light and help create a better learning environment.
