My Students

I have a classroom packed with creative students. Students that draw creatures you have never seen before, students that write stories of places you wish you could visit, and students that play games at recess that use more imagination than I ever thought possible. As students get older this sense of creativity seems to disappear. I make it my daily mission to embrace their creativity and nurture it.

Our classroom culture is built on acceptance.

We accept others for who they are and welcome our differences. Students do this by encouraging each other when working on projects and finding things they like in other students’ ideas. This helps us to build a classroom community where every student is valued and has something to contribute. We are a team determined to succeed together.

My Project

Having individual copies of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone will allow our class to explore the novel and the themes within it. Individual copies allow students to customize their reading experience. They can use sticky notes to mark vocabulary words, parts they didn’t understand, or parts they want to discuss with the class. Having individual copies also allows me to help individualize instruction. I can let some students read on their own while I read with a small group of students to offer more support.

My hope is that these books will be another way to bring my students together.

It offers many opportunities to talk about difficult topics like loss of parents and unkind peers. It also gives students more outlets and inspiration for their own creativity. All while I am covering many state standards.
