My Students

My classroom this year is a fourth and fifth grade room full of high-ability students. Located in Indiana, our students come from varying socioeconomic and personal backgrounds with nearly sixty percent receiving reduced-price or free lunch. Our school is diverse, as it includes gifted enriched learning, special education, and ABA rooms, preschool, and general education programs. Students from outside of our district can travel to our school to be involved in these special education and gifted programs throughout the year. This year, my split classroom requires me to find texts that can be used for the next two groups, as I may loop with students.

My students are thinkers, builders, artists, and my daily source of laughter.

I have several students with twice-exceptionalities (both gifted and have disabilities). Diversity in our classroom covers these abilities, as well as students from varying cultures.

EWA provides gifted art and band classes, as well as enrichment success periods at the end of the day. There are various clubs and organizations for students to take part in and a phenomenal staff who support each other.

My Project

During the year, my learners are quick to latch onto new information and soak it up like a sponge. We cover so much content in the split classroom that they often need fun ways to review, what we have covered. By allowing students to have independent or small group games as centers during our "success" time, they will be able to revisit and practice these topics again.

Centers are the perfect activity to have set up for my kids during success period!

By using materials like folder games and quick-grab quiz cards, my students will be able to master more content. I want to see my students playing with their friends as they reaffirm and practice new language skills or units of history this year.
