My Students

Our school is a growing charter school with about 70% of the student body receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and multiple labels ODD, ADHD, ADD, OHI, ELL, and more. Their diversity isn't limited to just their backgrounds, but to the ways they learn best as well.

We are a fully inclusive elementary school that serves just over 500 students.

My students come to school eager to learn, whether or not they have support at home. They work hard to try to meet the high expectations of the teachers at the school. They thrive on new academic experiences and show the most growth with hands-on, real world activities.

My Project

I firmly believe that students do their best writing when they know they will have an audience. When they can see the value in the steps of the writing process (brainstorm, draft, edit & revise, and publish), they begin to consistently use those steps. The wall hanging pocket chart will be a great place for them to keep their work as it is in process, the organizer will hold all the supplies they need to get them from beginning to end (pencils, erasers, colored checking pens, black ink pens for the final draft), and the chair and microphone will give them the stage to SHARE their writing!

Having a space to organize their writing while in process and a stage and microphone to share what they have to say will foster so many amazing pieces of writing in our classroom!
