My Students

My students are fun, compassionate, and curious young children. When they arrive at school in the morning, they race to the schedule, excited to find out what is on the agenda for the day.

Every day is fresh, new, and exciting!

Our school is one of the most diverse in the district, and is located in a tight-knit community in the heart of San Francisco. Many of my students' cousins, parents, and even grandparents have attended our school!

The community bond shows through as students giggle, play, and learn together throughout the day.

My Project

This year I'm working on incorporating more personalized learning opportunities into our daily schedule. I want students to set appropriate goals for themselves and then work toward those goals. Center time seems like a great opportunity to incorporate goal setting because students are free to work on the activities of their choosing.

I envision each student setting a goal at the beginning of center time and then engaging in appropriate activities that will help them achieve that goal.

For example, a child working on 1-to-1 correspondence while counting may complete the number puzzle or use the peg number boards. Students working on learning all of their letter sounds could use the alphabet rubbing plates or watch an alphabet video and write the corresponding letters on a white board.

I'm excited to engage my students in goal setting because I believe it is a valuable life skill. Thanks for helping me make it fun as well!
