My Students

My students live in a low-income/high-poverty urban school district. Their experiences are limited. They are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom, with challenges including emotional trauma, a high mobility rate, and many other special needs.

Many of them are being raised in single-parent households, and 99% receive free lunch and breakfast.

My students are 70% Hispanic and 30% African-American. I have several ELL students in my class as well as special needs students. The majority of my students are far below the national and state standards in reading and math.

My Project

My students will start off the school year learning how to work in groups.

We will use the scented markers to motivate groups to collaborate on social emotional learning topics such as what is respect.

My students will turn and talk about what respect means to them and everyone will contribute on chart paper. The instructions will be in the document holders. We will discuss all the procedures in the classroom in this way including hall pass and pencil procedures.

I really want to start the year off right and consistent, modeling and teaching my expectations and these supplies will help me do just that!
