My Students

My students are creative, enthusiastic, highly motivated kids! They work well in whole class, small group, and partnership settings. They are avid readers and enjoy discussing the books they read and sharing their writing with one another.

My 5th-grade students are working on self-regulation and aiming to build greater independence and accountability skills.

They enjoy participating in book clubs and writing teams. They often participate in peer review and self-reflection to enhance their individual and group growth. Our school focuses on reading comprehension and my students understand how important using literacy strategies are to enable themselves to tap into their full potential as readers and writers.

My Project

My students learn reading and writing through Lucy Calkin’s Readers’ and Writers’ Workshop. That means that while there is a lot of building autonomy through independent work, there are also many occasions for partner collaboration and one-on-one student/teacher conferences occurring each day.

Offering flexible seating, or a variety of seating options in my classroom will allow my students to discover where and how they best learn.

Every day, students work together to share their thinking, discuss ideas, and help one another analysis content. Sitting at a round low-rise table offers a different learning environment when compared to traditional individual desks. Different types of seating is also valuable when considering students who need to get wiggles out. Sitting on a wobble chair or balance ball seat provides students the opportunity to move appropriately during instruction and work time without distracting themselves or those around them.
