My Students

I have 21 fun and energetic students who love to be in school. They love to explore and are really beginning to understand print concepts! We are a high needs school with a diverse group of fantastic students. The students are learning at extreme rates, but I want to be able to help them instantly know if they are understanding the concepts.

We have flexible seating to help us get the wiggles out!

My students are unique and love to learn about new things. I believe they should have the opportunity to learn in the way they need to. They need engaging and fun materials that are engaging for all.

My Project

My students are a unique group of fantastic readers. They have gone through all of my lower level books and are now ready for more difficult chapter books. We have reached the point where the books we have in the classroom are not challenging or entertaining anymore. These books by Dav Pilkey are unique and entertaining for all ages. I know my students will blossom while reading these books. My students have been asking for more books that are not just for the girls in the classroom. These books would be a benefit to all of my students. I know that Captain Underpants books would be checked out and taken home on a regular basis!
