My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several obstacles both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are active, inquisitive and enjoy small group learning.

At any given point during the school day we break out into small groups and move throughout the room to learn. As a class of 20 fourth graders, they are growing and need a place to go to read, work on a computer, or create a project that is larger than their desks.

I have many students that need a work space other than their desks. They enjoy reading, writing, math small group projects and games, STEM activities, and working on computers. Sometimes they want to work by themselves in a quiet spot.

My Project

During independent work times my students are able to choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as at different tables with traditional chairs, wobble stools and regular stools. They can also be found laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. The classroom carpet is a focal point in our room and has a multi use approach. We will use it at morning meeting time as we gather to talk about the daily schedule. This area will also be a prime location for students to work together on our projects as we move into a project based learning model at our school.
