My Students

My school is a small and diverse Title I school on the east side of Tacoma. My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with 96% receiving free breakfast and lunch every day. My students walk into my classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for the day.

My students are eager to learn and do their best; they want to be at school learning and being successful every day, but, due to Covid-19, we will be beginning kindergarten online this fall.

My students are creative, caring, and clever. They are learning to be friends and share, and they are building lifelong learning skills in reading, math, science, and social studies to better them as they continue their education.

My Project

My school just announced we are going back to in-person teaching in January! When we go back to school we know we'll be making a lot of changes, from tables to individual desks, from shared supplies to individual supplies. However, where are my students going to be able to store these, with the least mess?

My students love the book series "How to Catch" different animals, so every month we are doing a book report on the way they will capture each animal.

I am having to change the way I teach small group to doing whole group work, while keeping all students engaged and motivated. With these fun books, my students get many ideas to respond in writing their own creative, clever ways, of catching the animals.

We have done discussions online with these stories in different books. Since we will be getting into the classroom soon, safely, I am excited to be able to have How to Catch: A Unicorn, Mermaid, Toothfairy, Yeti, and turkey.

The pencils and journals will be used as the students reporting journals to begin writing their responses. They will be able to do many drafts of their work and draw pictures to show their plans. I think this will motivate them and excite them to connect to the story, and be able to share their replies when they are finished with their assignment.

I want to help lessen the spread of Covid-19, and by having individual supplies, I think my class and I will be able to do a good part in our classroom at school.
