My Students

I teach second and third grade literacy to two dynamic groups of learners in Washington state. The neighborhood represents a variety of cultures/families, all of whom are represented in our classrooms. We have students who speak multiple languages and who have varying levels of financial need.

Excitement is the name of the game in our classroom.

Whether we are learning about poetic forms, the life cycle of the Brassica plant, or how to read with grit, the students in my class are excited to soak up all they can.

My Project

At the beginning of the year in our class, students set goals for themselves in several areas - they set goals for what reading levels they want to get to by the end of the year, how many minutes they spend on our online reading program, how many homework packets they complete, the list goes on! My job as a teacher is to find ways to motivate students to achieve their goals; some are intrinsically motivated to move ahead in their learning, and others need a little extra push to encourage them to cross that finish line!

Filling our prize box with exciting, non-candy items will help me provide that small amount of extrinsic motivation that will encourage students to meet and exceed their goals in reading, writing and work time production.

Students will set clear goals for their work time and be able to choose from the prize box on Fridays when their goals are met. Prizes such as pencils, erasers, spinner toys and small stuffed animals are highly coveted objects, and as non-candy items, will not have a negative effect on students' physical health. I can't wait to see how far students will go with these additions to our prize box!
