My Students

I teach a very diverse group of children. Their interests, needs, academic levels, and socio-economic levels vary greatly. Each child comes to school ready and wanting to learn something new and exciting. They are ready to be challenged, loved, and discover the best they have to give. As a team we learn how to accept differences, learn from our mistakes, and hopefully come away each day with a smile that will last. My students need instruction as a whole, as individuals, and as groups. In order for this to happen, we need different learning areas.

There is no such thing as a typical classroom anymore as each child has a way to learn and express themself.

It gives them confidence they need to know that not one size fits for everyone. Giving them areas to move to and explore, sit and read a quiet book, or play math games is key to successful personal growth.

My Project

By having a central space for children to share, come together as a team of learners, relax and regroup is essential for every classroom. Third grade children are active and need a place that will fit everyone comfortably. Our fire retardant rug will serve as our operation central for morning meeting, read aloud, sharing our writings, and celebrations throughout the year.

All children need time to be together as one team in order to help them learn that we all need each other and that we are there for each other as a classroom of learners.

It will give a place for math games, STEM Projects, face to face conversations, creating memories, and beginning our day together as a family before we move to our next steps.
