My Students

My students are the future! This is a class that supports each other and encourages each other. They do a great job with working cooperatively.

Many students in our class are lacking in background knowledge.

Reading books, connecting to educational websites, and researching STEM projects are great ways to introduce them to the world!

Our classroom is set up so that cooperative learning happens every day​. Students are more engaged when working together and discussing aloud with their peers. It is a joy to watch students learn together!

My Project

Group reading is an everyday event in my classroom; however, they currently read in their chairs with no table available for their supplies. Materials are kept on their lap or on the floor around them. Having a designated reading table would allow students to not only hear one another as they read, but also have meaningful, interactive conversations.

Students anchored around a reading table feel more connected with a group and are more engaged readers.

This table would afford students greater visibility to the teacher's modeling of correct literacy procedures.

As a third grade teacher, I want to provide every opportunity for students' success.
