My students are beautiful and brilliant. Our class consists of multi-level learners. Our school is a high-poverty, Title I school, meaning that one hundred percent of our students receive free or reduced-priced lunch. A fraction of my students are homeless and many of my other students have houses or apartments they share with one or more families. Some of my students do not have a bed to sleep on. I've noticed they are hungry in the mornings and by midday. We are an extended day school where the kids stay later than a usual school dismissal time.
Our school is located in a high-poverty neighborhood.
My students work very hard every day. Our class has a ninety-eight percent attendance rate, which means the students rarely miss school. We value our learning time.
My students come from multi-ethnic backgrounds, each with distinctive cultural traditions. In our classroom, we blend our traditions to form strong community ties.
Students love to be organized but don't always know how to be in the fourth grade. This will be their first time with a planner. I will love to give all fourth graders planners on the first day of school and show them how we will stay organized the whole year. They get to personalize it and know that it is their own for the school year.
Planners help make and keep students organized.
There are special places for the students to write homework, important reminders, and important dates for school activities. I will be able to write notes to my students parents. These will help open up the line of communication with the parents.
