My Students

The dynamic group of students in my class keeps me on my toes every day! I teach in a school that has strong ties to the community and a local university. As a school, we are always on an adventure, both outside and inside our classroom. The journey I take is with 23 creative, curious, active learners. Most of my students come from low-income families and the classroom becomes a place of kindness and learning when they are in it.

In my classroom, we love to combine a variety of hands-on materials and technology to support our learning!

We use a variety of print, website, apps, and manipulatives to help build 2nd-grade skills. We use books as a way to learn new information about our classroom curriculum and who we are. My students love to share what they learn.

My Project

Learning in small groups is so important for children. During their small groups, student independently build on academic skills and also manage self regulation and social skills as well. It is important, as the teacher, to provide a variety of learning activities that foster a love a learning and independent success.

VersaTiles will provide my students with independent, self-checking, self-paced, hands-on math practice.

Students will use these manipulatives to conquer 2nd grade math skills in a fun engaging way. Since they cover a wide range of second grade skills, they will be used to review previous learning to support differentiated learning. These tiles are aligned to state standards so they are perfect for test prep.
